Tenley’s research looks to integrate insights from environmental geography and urban ecology to improve our understanding of the relationship between human activity and the physical environment within the urban landscape.  Her research is driven by questions surrounding the ecology of human-dominated landscapes, equitable access to natural amenities, and the efficacy of current management approaches. Currently projects focus on the role of different actors in shaping the urban forest and urban agriculture.
