Mapping Capital: Economic Geography and the City — Digital Geography — Critical GIS

I’m an economic geographer whose research focuses on the nexus of cites, technology, and uneven development. I seek to combine advanced quantitative methods, critical GIS, and qualitative research. I split my overarching research interests across two broad projects connected through the framework of mapping (more than) capital.
