My goal is to help make cities a more vibrant place to live, work, and play. I have learned from the places I have lived around the world and adapted to different cultures and customs. As a result, being involved in the communities where I'm living is very important to me. This community involvement has made me grow as a researcher and taught me how to work in different environments. I have been able to work with many community members and organizations, researching to help on a practical level. Understandably, every community has issues to be understood and problems they wish to address. I try my best to help make a difference in an ongoing and accessible manner. Therefore, I aim to create positive community change through research.
