My work focuses on how communities and regions produce and
disrupt disparities in youth well-being, with emphasis on
disparities associated with race/ethnicity, immigration,
socio-economic status and geographic location. My interest in
youth well-being situates my activity at the intersection of
educational reform, public health, youth development and
community development. I ground my work conceptually at the nexus
of theories of development in social ecological contexts,
critical human geographers’ analyses of space and place as
socially produced, and critical race theory.
