Broadly, my research is concerned with understanding experiences of poverty and compounded disadvantages within urban environments. My dissertation studies acts of "every-day" resistance to the law through the illegal use of private property in Detroit, Michigan. I examine the context within which actions such as squatting and scrapping arise, the legal consciousness of participants and observers, and the possibility for social change arising from these every-day acts of resistance. Other research focuses on the residential experiences of former prisoners who face many obstacles to securing stable housing, and the spatial inequality of Johannesburg, South Africa post-apartheid.
