ResearchMy research explores the relationships among land use, the environment, human behavior, and structural inequality on a variety of research projects including: social stratification and its impact of the siting of hazardous land uses; social vulnerability and emergency preparedness; and the impact of land use decisions on ecosystems services. My most recent research investigates plan and policy implementation and the land use decision-making process at the parcel level.
