Andrew Binet

I am a fourth-year PhD student in DUSP, where my research sits at the intersection of urban planning and public health. I am especially interested in how changes in the built environment shape relations of care and social reproduction. For five years, I have been involved in the Healthy Neighborhoods Study, a longitudinal Participatory Action Research (PAR) project exploring the links between neighborhood development and health in nine rapidly-changing communities across the Boston metropolitan area. Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a community health planning consultant for healthcare providers and labor unions in Boston and New York City.
