Graduate advisor:   Prof. Donna Cox, NCSA

Research:

I’m interested in the design of public commons, both material (like cafes) and digital (such as facebook). What roles do architectural design and theory play in the emergence of communities; shared beliefs, practices, and identities? How can we design common spaces to foster stronger, more resilient communities?
