C.N.E. Corbin is a PhD Candidate at the University of California, Berkeley in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management within the Division of Society & Environment. Corbin’s research examines the relationships between society and nature within the built environment by investigating the concept of the green city within the United States. As an environmentalist and urban politica​l ecologist​, her work questions how environmental policies and practices in cities impact low-income communities and communities of color and their access to public green spaces. Corbin’s work focuses on the relationships between green space creation, beautification, climate mitigation, and urban sustainability projects and their influence on gentrification and the displacement of vulnerable communities. The aim of her research is to illuminate how historical processes of urbanization and current urban environmental policies, at scale, are impacting the lived experiences of the most vulnerable residents right now, and what that could mean for future populations living in cities.
