My academic interests include urban governance, community development, and neighborhood change.  I am particularly interested in the ways that race, class, gender, and place intersect to marginalize or empower different types of people, organizations, and institutions as they attempt to shape urban space.   I draw from over a decade of professional experience in the field of community development, mainly on the west side of Chicago.
