My research interests focus on the redevelopment of public housing and urban systems of poverty management. I am especially interested in the institutional and spatial arrangements related to poverty management systems. Within these systems, I investigate how poverty is being dispersed, shifted and reformed within the urban landscape. As a result of these areas of inquiry, I have developed a strong foundation in the areas of revitalization, housing policy, and community development.
