Professor of Geography – University of Washington

My work contributes to urban geography, relational poverty research, critical GIS & geoweb studies, and mixed/visual methods. Current activities include co-directing the Relational Poverty Network with Vicky Lawson and comparative research on middle class poverty politics in mixed income residential neighborhoods in Buenos Aires and Seattle. Two recently completed initiatives examined the role of the geoweb in transforming privacy, activism and visual epistemologies; and the potential of interactive mapping technologies in fostering young teens’ collaborative learning and critical politics.

Other activities and accomplishments: Editor of Progress in Human Geography 2013-17; 2012 UW Distinguished Teaching Award; 2006 Richard Morrill Public Outreach Award.
