Ginsberg Fellow, Fall/Winter 2010
Anna is a candidate for a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from Rutgers New Brunswick’s Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. There she concentrates in environmental planning and is conducting research with the Center for Energy, Economic, and Environmental Policy on regional and interstate energy policy agreements. Before then she received a B.A. from the University of Delaware, where she studied sociology and geography.
At CHPC, Anna was involved in archival research as well as research regarding cost-effective mechanisms for increasing New York’s affordable housing stock while mitigating energy loss and waste. This project represents the intersection of her major interests: environmental stewardship, social equity, and urban design.
"CHPC has given me an opportunity from which any young planner could benefit: a chance to examine fledgling beliefs under the tutelage of some of the most respected housing experts in the field. The ability to avoid making convenient assumptions and to instead impartially examine every step of the decision making process to arrive at the most beneficial conclusion is a tool that I will carry through my career as a planner."
