Most broadly, my research focuses on complex human-environment interactions. In my dissertation, I am examining the resilience of the global network of cities to climate change impacts. I am interested in understanding how system-wide failures emerge from climate change impacts, and in the potential for mitigating these impacts across scales. My work draws on techniques including network simulation and analysis, agent-based modeling, and spatial analysis.
