My research engages the interfaces between hegemonic and clandestine spatial-planning practice, and particularly how historically unequal and traumatic urbanization processes affect contemporary equitable development goals and outcomes. I am a PhD student in Urban Planning at Columbia University (Degree Expected: 2024). My interests include urban and planning theory, local-government and planning law, and mixed-methods research focused on planning practice and urban governance in post-apartheid South Africa, the United States, and Mexico.
