research overview

  • The introduction of water systems, transportation systems, and modern communication networks transformed the United States. However, this infrastructure has divided communities, bisected habitats, and interfered with migration routes. With awareness focusing on green infrastructure, environmental justice, and the renewal of natural habitats, my research explores ideas about how to reconnect communities, catalyze social and environmental justice, and promote invention and development of new energy and transit models.
