Connor Chapman

My general research interests lie in urban and environmental sociology, specifically where they intersect. I am interested in studying the rapid growth of mobility justice movements and their impact on the urban environment. These movements seek to identify social inequalities that are created and sustained by the built environment and advocate for innovative solutions that promote access to mobility systems. It is important to understand and overcome the unique barriers that mobility justice movements face in order to make a meaningful change toward creating sustainable urban environments and addressing the ever-increasing threat of climate change. As a first-year graduate student, I am currently refining my research interests and making progress my second-year paper.
