I am currently working on three projects that all concern housing issues, particularly mortgage and tax foreclosures. These events contributed to the recent financial crisis and have been exacerbated by it. My research focuses attempting to understand the events "on the ground" by looking at how, why and where foreclosures happen. At the same time I am interested in the larger theoretical issues surrounding housing and it serves as an intermediary bringing the influences of global capital to neighborhood change.
|The Process of Foreclosure: Lucas County, Ohio|
|Foreclosures in New York City|
In this project I am working with Xueying Chen (MA Toledo, 2010) and Benjamin Teresa both of Rutgers University to analyze a rich dataset collected by the Center for New York City Neighborhoods. CNYCN has provided a small grant to fund the initial analysis which we started in the summer of 2011.
