I am an urban geographer and study energy and labor politics. My research investigates the effects of urban energy governance on workers and communities. I study how uneven power relations rooted in race, gender, class, and ability shape energy policy and organizing for energy justice. My research has a regional focus on the US South; however, I am interested in working with students and organizations engaged within and outside the region.
