- My research interests fall broadly under the heading of urban and economic geography. In particular I am interested in the interplay between capital, technology, and the state, specifically in relation to large-scale infrastructure planning and land-use law. Empirically, I focus on New York City after the American Civil War, from 1865 until the Great Depression began, in 1929.
