Miles is currently a dual degree student in the School of Design and the Fels Institute pursuing Masters degrees in City Planning and Public Administration. In the past, he has worked as a firefighter and EMT for the US Forest Service, a policy researcher for the Department of Homeland Security, and most recently as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Republic of Fiji. Here at Penn, he is interested in city management and design and also how urban environments can be made more resilient to natural disasters. Despite growing up with parents who own and operate natural health food stores, he loves fast food and can usually be found at lunchtime either at the closest halal food truck or waiting in line with all the undergrads at Chipotle.
