Office Hours: By appointment

I am an Associate Professor of Planning and Design in the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado Denver.

My research examines how planners, designers, and citizens can help create urban environments that are more equitable and inclusive. Recent work examines several timely topics: the impact of anti-terrorism security on civil liberties, the effect of zoning regulations on public space design, the challenges confronting planners in cities experiencing severe economic decline and shrinking populations, and the development of new policy frameworks for controversial land uses such as medical marijuana facilities.
