Projects:Placemaking Evaluation Fellowship
Marium (she/her) is a Fulbright scholar and a graduate student at Pratt Institute’s MS Urban Placemaking and Management program. In her work, she loves to explore themes of mobility and transportation and is interested in its intersection with social space.
She has previously worked as an intern at Open Plans, studying placard abuse and the ways in which the government encourages driving among city employees. Her internship with the NYC DOT consisted of researching potential formalized curbside spaces for micro mobility delivery workers. She enjoys spatial analysis and has explored neighborhood walkability and cycling mobility for Brooklyn through a series of detailed maps.
Her interests in placemaking and public spaces derive from studying urban sociology. For her undergraduate thesis, Marium analyzed the built environment of bus stops in Lahore, Pakistan with the aim of making them safer and more comfortable for women. On the weekends, she loves biking through NYC parks and neighborhoods and petting bodega cats.
