I teach courses that focus on urban economic analysis, public finance and planning, and planning research methods. I am also the coordinator of the Planning Innovations Technology (PIT) Lab.

My research interests include community and economic development, urban economic analysis, public investment in image-based mega-projects, the role of sport and culture in community development, and youth participation in planning. Much of my scholarly research has focused on the relationship between sports, economic development, and urban public policy. I recently published Sport and Public Policy: Social, Political, and Economic Perspectives with Dr. Gerard Mildner of Portland State University.

Before entering academia I worked as a principal planner for housing and neighborhood preservation with the City of Richmond, Virginia.
