Aaron's research interests are centered on identifying how grassroots environmental movements and local governments negotiate policy across regional contexts. At the heart of this work is a central concern with how conceptions of space and land use shape the relationship between grassroots movements and local government. His dissertation work compares the socio-political structure of the urban gardening movements in Boston, Massachusetts and Austin, Texas. In particular, this project seeks to understand why the gardening movements within each of these cities is both robust, yet structurally quite different.
