Summary Academic Interest

Dr. Brinkley's research is focused on public health outcomes around the food-energy-waste nexus. She uses qualitative methods along with social network mapping and spatial analytics to understand farm-to-city services such as food supply and waste-to-energy. She is particularly interested in how these networks impact neighborhood socio-economics and greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to support sustainable land-use planning around environmental justice.
