20-Minute Cities: Using Mobility Simulation to Strengthen Urban Resiliency

This summer, I will work with Professor Timur Dogan to research how street features impact people's travel choices and how to design more pedestrian friendly environments. Specifically, we hope to work with community organizations in Bronx NYC, to implement improvements to existing streets.

I am a second-year student in the Bachelor of Architecture program at Cornell University. I am passionate about design and exploring how the built environment can positively impact people and cities. Through the Laidlaw program, I hope to research how the street characteristics affect people’s travel mode choice and collaborate with communities to create more walkable streets.

In my free time, I enjoy running and hiking. I also love exploring new places and learning new languages!
