Her current research examines the intersections of design, everyday life, and racial history in Central Virginia, focusing on how racism is enacted through space, and how spatial practices can become levers for social change. Alissa teaches in urban and environmental planning and architectural history programs.
In addition to her studies, Alissa is currently working with the UVA Equity Center on collaborative research for a regional equity atlas. She is also a research associate with the Monument Lab National Monument Audit. Alissa earned a BS in architecture in 2002 and an MLA in 2008, also at the University of Virginia.
