Brianna is a Geography PhD student at UC Santa Barbara, broadly interested in using geospatial methods to analyze the role of the natural and built environment in driving health and social disparities. Ultimately, she aims to promote equitable access to better health in our communities. 

Brianna received her Bachelor's degree in Environmental Health from the Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC Chapel Hill, and is now working with the Population Health in Geography (PHiG) and Spatial Pattern Analysis and Research (SPAR) groups. Her current research explores issues of equity and access related to mobility, traffic safety, and health outcomes within active transportation contexts.
