I am an urbanist with expertise in gender and active/sustainable mobility. In particular, I have done extensive research and advocacy to elevate gender-inclusive cycling on the urban policy agenda. My background is in civil rights law and I bring a strong social justice/inclusion perspective to urbanism and sustainability.
I wrote my masters dissertation (which received Distinction) at LSE Cities on the gender gap and other inequalities in cycling. An abridged version of my dissertation was published in Applied Mobilities journal and I created a zine, Mind the Cycling Gender Gap, to amplify the voices of women cyclists.
Most recently, my research has focused on the gendered impacts of climate change in cities and urban policy/strategies for more gender-inclusive climate action.
Originally a New Yorker, I am currently based in London, after having lived and worked in Washington, DC and Madrid.
