Department of Geography, University of Oregon

I am pursuing my PhD in the Department of Geography at the University of Oregon. I am a methodologist and cartographer concerned with social inequality. My current project with Dr. Amy Lobben works to directly improve the quality of life for persons with a disability. Specifically, we are working with others in our S3C lab to create a personalized accessible map routing application.

I hold a B.A. in Peace Studies from Whitworth University and two masters degrees from Southern Illinois University - an M.A. in Sociology and an M.S. in Geography. I have previously worked as a researcher for the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute and a water resources analyst for the consulting firm CDM Smith.

My previous work examined the household level plumbing inequality, unequal impacts of natural disasters and the relationship between health and environments.
