About this site

I am a researcher, writer, teacher, and elected school board member in Albany, California.

Research: My research focus includes workforce development, public finance, urban politics, labor markets, and public education. I have led research projects on workforce development policy and program administration, economic development policy, and low-wage labor markets. —My research—

Writing: I write about a lot of things, some serious and some less so. I am passionate about understanding why we normalize public scarcity, especially amid so much private affluence. I also like synthesizing important research into useful briefs and editing academic writing of all kinds (that’s the serious stuff). I’m also fascinated by how we see ourselves in relation to place, by music lyrics, the role of sports in our culture, and how we grieve loss. —My writing—

Teaching: I am a lecturer in City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley. —My teaching—

School Board: you can visit my page at www.sara4ausd.com
