Hi, I'm Nadha. I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow focused on research and action at the intersections of public health x public urban space x intersectional anti-racism.
My body of work focuses on community-engaged research as an avenue to improve health equity in built and natural environments. I work to co-produce knowledge to catalyze social change in public space
My research and community work is informed by my intersectional lived experience, interdisciplinary education, and diverse work experience. I share the stories and realities of racialized and other marginalized communities towards equitably health-promoting environments.
