Summary of Research Interests
My scholarship addresses local governance and the regulation of the built environment. Much of my research focuses on the efficacy of specific interventions intended to reduce inequality, particularly interventions intended to improve housing affordability. A second line of research assesses broad changes in the institutions of local governance since World War II that have affected metropolitan development patterns.
