Nicole Iroz-Elardo

Nicole Iroz-Elardo was a PhD Candidate in Urban Studies. She joined the program after working for several years as a statistician in environmental health. Her field areas are in urban planning/negotiation theory and urban health. She was drawn to these specializations because she wants to understand how planning curriculum and public planning processes can better support social justice ideals and outcomes. Her dissertation investigates the potential of Health Impact Assessments (HIA) to provide communities an additional avenue to participate in and influence the planning process. She is also working on a research project with Dr. Bassett to understand and document the urban chicken movement and city ordinances. When she's not working on her dissertation, she's likely in the garden with her 3-year old son.
