Hi, my name is Stephanie. I am a PhD student in Regional Planning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and this fall I will be flying off to Singapore and Stockholm to conduct my doctoral field research. Prior to starting the PhD I worked as an urban planning consultant in both California and Auckland, New Zealand. My current research questions have evolved from this experience.
In general, I love research that involves urban sustainability, environment-behavior studies, transnational comparison, and/or linking planning academia to practice. I feel very lucky that I get to study, research, and share knowledge on topics and issues I am passionate about.
