Community & Regional Development
Assuming an interdisciplinary approach, the bulk of my published and current research activities centers on employing multiple methodological strategies to enable empirical analysis of social, economic, and environmental systems. Such analyses yield important understanding and empirical evidence that are ripe with conclusions and implications for research on social inequality, environmental sustainability, urban development, and related theorizations. Currently, I am continuing my research that empirically examines the intersection of race, class, gender, and environmental inequality, with specific focus on the distribution of multiple types of landfills (Construction and Demolition, industrial, and municipal). This research incorporates analysis of quantitative, spatial, and qualitative data, to integrate insights from feminist intersectionality into the environmental sociology subfield. This research is funded by the NSF (#1602813).
