Using a critical and participatory approach, my research concerns young people’s engagement in resolving global social and environmental injustices.
Currently, I am a Senior Research Associate for Community Based Research and Data Analysis at the Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York where I am responsible for CCC’s community data collection projects. These projects complement the Keeping Track data and elevate the voices of community members, service providers, and other experts, especially when public data are lacking.
I also collaborate with the Children’s Environments Research Group in Center for Human Environments where I directed the Article 15 Project and other research initiatives. I have taught at the City University of New York, including Brooklyn College, Hunter College, and the School of Law. I have been a member of the New Media Lab at the Graduate Center and chaired the Nature, Ecology & Society Network’s Network’s annual colloquium.
I received my PhD in Environmental Psychology from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and BA in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles.
