I'm an assistant professor in urban planning in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning at Cornell University and Director of the Urban Data Research Lab. My main research traces the legacies of historical structural disinvestment and asks how they have shaped present-day inequality and processes of neighborhood change.
I have a new paper looking at the regional variation of the Federal Housing Administration and HOLC's impacts of stratified housing outcoomes.
Another recent paper uses mobile phone GPS data to measure variation in experienced racial diversity and segregation.
I made a map tool that looks at the socioeconomic and demographic trajectories over from 1930 to 2016 of areas graded by the HOLC.
