I am interested in sustainability and societal equality. I have a PhD (2012) and Masters (2008) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a Bachelors (2006) from University College Dublin. At MIT I worked with John Fernandez on the topic of urban metabolism, focusing on neighborhood scale analysis.
I am currently a co-founder of coUrbanize, a startup that provides an online community management platform for urban developers to share project information with residents. We are based in Cambridge, MA.
Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the National GeoComputation Center, Ireland, (Oct. 2012 - March 2013) where I worked with Alexei Pozdnoukhov as part of the StratAG project. In Sep. 2012, I co-founded urbmet.com with Daniel Wiesmann. We made geospatial tools to facilitate analysis, with clients in the US and Europe.
