Research Background and Goals

My master’s thesis was about measuring greenhouse gas emission and the analysis on its application in Buffalo-Niagara metropolitan region. It aims to keep greenhouse gas emission at a low level considering the impact of economy share changes on the green city transformation. Also, I worked on the region’s sustainability project in the research center in Buffalo. My main task there was developing sustainability indicators in the area of environment, food, transportation, and housing. I’d love to pursue a career as a researcher and a teacher in the field of urban studies.
