Greer Hamilton, M.S.W., Ph.D., is a place-based researcher who examines how systems of oppression are embedded into the built environment and subsequently impact people’s health, well-being and use of public spaces. As a researcher, she uses community-engaged and arts-based approaches to understand study participants’ experiences with places. Prior to her work as a researcher, she worked in Buffalo, New York for nonprofits focused on health inequities and community capacity building.
