I am an urban and economic geographer who approaches cities and their global connections, broadly conceived, through registers of political economy. I am also the Student Representative for both the AAG Urban Geography Specialty Group (2018 – ) and the AAG Asian Geography Specialty Group (2018 – ). Like most people who are both fascinated and troubled by what is happening to cities globally, I spend time exploring urban environments, on foot and across imaginative geographies.
I use this website mainly as a digital repository both to catalog media I find interesting, and to store photographs of the pleasures and whimsies of urban landscapes I encounter while walking through cities.
