Teaching fellow for a course (jointly led by Profs. Eve Blau, Sibel Bozdogan, Julie Buckler, Alex Krieger, and Rahul Mehrotra) required among graduate students in urban design. The course covered the histories of five cities--Boston, Berlin, Moscow, Mumbai, and Istanbul--engaging issues as diverse as planning bureaucracies and their varying scales of intervention, the influence of political ideology on urban form, demographic pressures and the problem of housing, real estate development in neoliberal economies, and the representation of the city in the cinematic imagination.
