Research Interest/Personal Statement:

 

My main research interests are in the areas of economic democracy and development. This includes issues of participatory planning and expertise, and innovating local and state policymaking across multiple areas for building institutions and vehicles for community wealth. The main conceptual questions in my dissertation deal with economy, development, knowledge, and community.

I’m also interested in pragmatic and genealogical methodology and issues of expertise and knowledge.

I am trying to figure out a way to fund the tens of billions of dollars in capital budget shortfalls for public housing and public libraries in NYC and nationally in a political context averse to infrastructure spending and higher taxes.

I dabble in the meaning of freedom and the politics of the Anthropocene when I can.
