Juliet is an urban and cultural geographer who contributes her writing/research, events, and administrative experience to communications and events at Project for Public Spaces. Originally from Los Angeles, Juliet spent a decade in the UK, where she obtained her MSc and PhD in urban geography. Her PhD thesis focused on gentrification and cultural identity in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake, and she continues to write about gentrification in other cities around the world. Juliet has participated in numerous community-focused urban research projects. From monitoring community recovery in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, to collaborating on an evaluation of a city-led regeneration scheme in one of London’s economically struggling outer boroughs, her work has focused on exploring and understanding communities through ethnographic methods.
