She also conducts qualitative research on lived experiences of mobility and accessibility for low-income populations and Black and Brown communities. She received a Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning from Cornell University, a M.A. in Community Development and Planning from Clark University, and a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from Bard College.
