Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests:

My current research and teaching interests include 1) "capital cities," an analysis of capital cities worldwide as the loci of culture, economics, politics and social movements as reflected in the built environment and art works; 2) "war, disaster, and the city," a class and a research project examining the impact of war and war-derived doctrines, languages, planning and building techniques on urban development and 3) the “international exchange of architectural and planning ideas.” Here I am specifically interested in diverse global networks and their spatial impact. My research and related course “The Global Architecture of Oil” explores this topic as well as my research on “Port Cities, Dynamic Landscapes and Global Networks.”
