My research examines the relationship between green urban development and the visibility of homelessness in cities. Situated in New York City but with global implications, this work centers the shift in development priorities toward what I call ecological development, where projects such as green infrastructure implementation, waterfront revitalization, and linear park creation take precedence in the city’s overall development agenda. I then ask how such a shift impacts the lives of homeless people through the frame of visuality, understanding that urban development and the visibility of homelessness are inextricably connected. In examining these questions, I work closely with Picture the Homeless, a homeless-led organization in New York City. Prior to entering academia, I worked as a housing organizer in the Bronx, where my interest in housing justice and its role in broader urban movements first took flight. I co-founded the Power at the Margins conference, a bi-annual gathering that brings together scholars and activists working for housing justice.
