Anna is currently working on a project to evaluate the prevalence of active school transport, perceptions about active school transport, and urban design factors supporting active modes of transportation at schools in Perth, Western Australia. Anna graduated with an M.Sc. in Environmental Psychology from the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University where she completed a research project aimed at understanding the effects of a nature camp on children's mental health, social health, and sense of place.
Her current research interests include how the built and natural environments affect children's mental, social, and physical well-being. Prior to going back to school, Anna worked as an environmental educator for the National Park Service. She is passionate about creating healthier and more resilient communities.
