In taking images, freezing moments, visual methods, as photography, allows us to discover how rich reality truly is. I discovered visual methods at the end of my undergraduate career, through an opportunity to conduct disaster research, and documenting disparities in storm water infrastructure across underprivileged communities. Now, as a Graduate Student at the University of Houston in Houston Texas, I am learning to construct my own visual research lens, with a particular interest in comparative assessment between visual and traditional research questions.
Outside academia, I have 10+ years of experience in management and leadership in both the private sector and community volunteering.
The marketplace of ideas, openness in academic exchange and the ability to cross-pollinate the field are all characteristics that have attracted me to IVSA. I look forward serving the organization and contributing to its success.
