What your background in Urban Studies has done for you:
Courses taught by Professor Clayton Nall (American Transportation Politics), Michael Rosenfeld (Urban Underclass), Danno Glanz (Urban Design), and Thomas Hansen (Global Urbanism) remain front of mind as I embark on study and practice at the intersection of critical urban theory, politics, power, and development. I remain good friends with many of Urban Studies colleagues as well
