I'm a professor in psychology at CUNY, trained in geography and most affiliated with the interdisciplinary field of childhood studies.

Much of my research has been on children's use and experience of the environment to try to improve planning and design for them, as well as to find methods for giving them a voice. I have helped International agencies, like the UN and Save the Children, with different projects all over the world that think about child participation.
