Aria Ritz Finkelstein

I study the politics and histories of landscape planning and design. Right now, that means looking at efforts to design frameworks for high seas spatial planning. In the past, it's meant researching afforestation plans in Israel's northern Negev and harbor dredging in Boston and Savannah.

I'm a doctoral candidate in planning and urban studies at MIT and a guest student in marine policy at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Home is a 31' sailboat that my partner and I dock in Boston, but sometimes you can find me in a crossword puzzle. This isn't my work, but I'm proud of creating its online home.
