I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Brown University’s Population Studies and Training Center. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina in the Department of City and Regional Planning. I am also a licensed architect. My interests center on how disasters affect population movement given the context of existing migration patterns, household-level climate change adaptation, risk communication strategies, and the relationship between historic inequity and vulnerability. I enjoy working with academics across disciplines, practitioners, and government officials. My hope to is to work with others towards more equitable recoveries.
