Lorien Nesbitt seeks to create more liveable and equitable urban environments. During her career, she has had the privilege to work with communities and organizations across Canada and internationally to achieve sustainability and environmental justice goals.

Nesbitt’s research focuses on urban forestry and social-ecological interactions in urban environments, with an emphasis on environmental justice, human health, well-being, and climate change. In the realm of environmental justice, her current research is particularly concerned with understanding the nature and dynamics of green gentrification, i.e., the physical or psychological displacement of residents due to local greening activities.
