My research focuses on how economic theory has influenced the ways that city governments engage with urban residents, and how technology mediates this relationship. I study transportation, education and public health policy in New York City. In practice, I am interested in discovering how planners can shape increasingly technical, market-based and data-driven modes of urban governance to incorporate citizen voice, and hew more closely to the participatory and ethical aims of public service.
