I’m a PhD student in the Design & Social Justice Studio at Georgia Tech’s Digital Media program. My academic research examines issues of access and justice in urban environments at intersections of digital, built, and bodily spaces.
My research interests builds on my experiences in landscape architecture and urban design, particularly in emotional and community spaces like gardens and memorials. I also draw from craft and making practices, including my previous work as a print maker that explores stories of places through screen prints.
