I am an urbanist with expertise in gender and sustainable mobility, particularly active mobility (i.e., cycling and walking). My background is in civil rights law and I bring a strong diversity/equity/inclusion perspective to urbanism. I am a huge cycling advocate and have done cycling advocacy in Washington, DC, New York City, and London. I wrote my masters dissertation 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 have a forthcoming zine, Mind the Cycling Gender Gap, to disseminate my work to a more general audience. 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.
