My work probes intersections of race, policing and punishment, and information technology in US cities. I explore the ways this nexus relates to urbanization, built environments, and how we experience and utilize city milieux. I also investigate systems of spatial knowledge in technocratic thought. Research methods include discourse analysis, content analysis, and other interpretive approaches.
