My research lies at the intersection of housing, land use, and transportation policies. I use mixed methods, including econometric and spatial analysis, interviews, and document analysis. My dissertation examines the impacts of rezoning in Seattle on housing and transportation outcomes. I study how coordinated planning through Seattle’s Urban Villages program has influenced housing supply and prices, residential location choices and economic and racial diversity, and transportation access and mode choice across different types of neighborhoods. I also critically examine the participatory processes that produced neighborhood plans in Seattle in the 1990s.
At UC Berkeley, I have conducted research with the Terner Center, Urban Displacement Project, and Institute of Transportation Studies. Prior to graduate school, I worked in affordable housing in New York City government. I have also previously worked with the World Bank and SPUR.
