The aim of my research activities is to investigate how involving stakeholders can lead to resilient design and planning solutions that are appropriate for the socio-biophysical contexts of neighborhoods and communities.
My research examines ways to improve the resilience of underserved communities vulnerable to the impact of climate-change related flooding and water quality changes.
I have pursued this research through projects that engage in transdisciplinary approaches and pursue deeper community involvement. This research has been sustained by external grant support as co-PI and as PI, including grant support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
