Research Interests: 

I am an architect with a Master’s degree in Design and Energy Conservation and currently in the Arid Lands Resource Science PhD program.  I am interested in the linkages between contact with nature and human wellbeing in urban environments and how neighborhood design can facilitate or impede this contact. My research also addresses the relationship between different levels of housing density, related overcrowding feelings, and possible relief provided by natural open spaces. I am also interested in different levels of conservation support as a result of contact with nature in cities.
