I am broadly interested in identifying climate mitigation and adaptation strategies that make cities more livable and people healthier. This includes quantifying the health co-benefits of decarbonization and resilience strategies like improved walkability and access to green spaces, as well characterizing existing inequities in urban environments. I make heavy use of demographic, health, geospatial, and remote sensing data in my work.
