I am an urban researcher and artist based in Queens, NY, where I am Assistant Professor of Urban Studies and Director of Graduate Studies at Queens College, City University of New York (CUNY). I am also an affiliated faculty member of the MFA in Social Practice program of the Queens College Art Department, and Assistant Professor of Geography at the CUNY Graduate Center. My academic work deals with the relationship between urban infrastructure and indeterminate spaces, as well as the spatial and cultural politics of urban transformation, all themes that overlap with my arts practice. I'm interested in the experience of the city, urban imaginaries, and of thinking of the built environment as an artifact of social relations.
I have exhibited my photographic work extensively in the United States, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Mexico, and have experience as an urban planner, museum educator and curator. Aside from my individual work, I had a longstanding photographic collaboration, Site Unseen, with artist Adam Ryder.
