Do Lee

I am a Visiting Lecturer and Graduate Advisor at the Department of Urban Studies.  My research interests critically examine the interrelatinships of people, mobility, environment, and social justice. My dissertation research in Environmental Psychology (PhD, The Graduate Center CUNY, 2018) focused on a participatory action research project with immigrant food delivery cyclists in NYC to examine the mobility and working experiences in the NYC streets from the food delivery perspective.  This work investigated the intersections of low-wage informal employment, delivery and logistics, bicycling and electric bikes, immigration, policing, street planning, and social justice activism and advocacy.

My professional career has included work on grassroots sustainability issues for environmental nonprofits such as the Sierra Nevada Alliance, ISAR, and the Center for Safe Energy along with environmental consulting with the Eurasia Environmental Associates LLC and other groups.  In addition, I served as an environmental education Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan.  My previous degrees include a Master in Public Administration in Earth Systems Science, Policy and Management from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts in Molecular Cell Biology from UC Berkeley.

2018 Winner

Shannae Johnson

My name is Shannae Johnson, a junior that major’s in Urban Studies and minor’s in Environmental Studies. Queens College has been my only home in the pursuit of my first bachelor’s degree since I moved to the United States in 2016. The faculty members here have been very personable and accessible, making my adjustment period fairly easy. Also, it has been very thrilling encountering other Urban Studies students who are devoted and especially helpful towards me. Through this, I am able to pursue my passion for development and growth of our cities and the communities within them. My goal specifically is to use my degree to make New York City more livable and sustainable for all.
