I research the relationships between urban ecological design, spatial politics, and social mobilization in the context of climate change and global urbanization. My research investigates the spatial politics of urban climate change responses, with an ongoing, longterm project based on fieldwork sites in cities in North America, Southeast Asia, and Western Europe. My current research explores theories of urbanization in a time of planetary boundaries, and the implications of the global climate justice movement for more equitable and sustainable cities. More broadly, my research interests include urban theory, urban design, environmental planning, and urban political ecology. I am the author of Form and Flow: The Spatial Politics of Urban Resilience and Climate Justice (MIT Press, 2021).
