    Biography

    ​I am a doctoral student at the University of Delaware in the Urban Affairs and Public Policy program. Before pursuing my doctorate, I obtained my bachelor’s degree in political science from Williams College and then my master’s in public administration from the University of North Texas. My research focuses on housing policy, identifying residential mobility patterns, and understanding how neighborhood conditions impact minority populations. I try to apply a local lens to my research, meaning my focus is on local policy and administrative endeavors. Some of my past research includes understanding the interconnections of housing and health where the goal is to address the mental and physical issues related to housing instability on populations. I am excited to be a member of the BAF in order to explore how community resiliency methods can be more effectively integrated into local planning policy to lessen post-disaster displacement and neighborhood succession.
