I am an Assistant Professor in the Public Health Department at SUNY Old Westbury. My background is in human-environment geography, with a focus on health, environment, social medicine, and justice in urban Latin America and the U.S. I completed my Ph.D. and M.A. in Geography at Ohio State in 2016 and 2010, respectively. I earned a B.S. in Biology, with minors in Spanish and Latin American Studies, from Xavier University in 2008.

Additionally, I regularly volunteer at and sit on the Board of Directors of Sure We Can, New York City’s only non-profit redemption center for canners.
