Major: Urban and Regional Studies
2022-2023 Academic Year
Having lived in many different contexts throughout my life, from Western Massachusetts to suburban Michigan, to New York City, I came to Cornell understanding the importance of the built environment. Too often, decisions around the built environment compromise human health and the natural environment with outsize consequences for the most marginalized communities. Throughout my time at Cornell, I have become especially interested in how decision-making can become more equitable, democratic, and proactive by developing robust social infrastructure. I also love to draw, learn languages, spend time in nature, and bike up Ithaca's many hills.
