As a member of the core research team for a project led by three professors at the Drexel University Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, I executed research activities to help assess the role of arts and culture in shaping West Philadelphia. Highlights include conducting fieldwork, scoping the neighborhoods.

I also helped in constructing the surveys for West Philadelphia residents, and interviewed 74 West Philadelphia residents on their thoughts on arts and culture opportunities in the area.
