I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability at the University of Oklahoma. As an interdisciplinary scholar with interests in energy, infrastructure, and the environment, I work to develop new perspectives and understandings on urban sustainability and climate politics. My current research explores the re/production of inequality and possibilities of social and environmental justice in renewable energy transitions and urban climate mitigation and adaptation. In ongoing research, I am investigating (1) the barriers and drivers of co-production in community science for environmental justice, (2) the political economy and governance of smart-sustainable cities, and (3) the politics of just transitions across the urban/rural divide.
I am the Chair of the Energy and Environment Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers. We are interested in organizing new events, activities, and awards, so please get in touch if you have any ideas to share.
