Coming from a background in architecture and landscape architecture, I chose to pursue a Ph.D. in urban planning because of its interdisciplinary nature. As a Ph.D. student in Urban Planning and Public Policy, I am interested in knowing how cities will shape, and be shaped by, their human inhabitants. In that vein, I seek to understand and document the economic, social, and environmental impacts of the relationship between humans and the built and natural environments.
My pursuit of these goals has been generously supported by CAPPA faculty and staff over the past few years, and I am immensely grateful for this support. CAPPA is more than a school. It is a community.
The program prepares doctoral students for academic careers and for leadership in research positions in the public, private or nonprofit sectors.
