My research investigates the pathways by which different urban environments, characteristics, and designs impact the mental health and wellbeing of adolescents using neuroscientific, statistical, and qualitative methods. Additionally, I am interested in youth physical activity (e.g., active transportation), public health planning policy, and intervention-based research. Outside of my planning and public health interests, and as a student currently enrolled in the Certificate in University Teaching program, I am also interested in the topics of student resilience and motivation.
