My broad areas of interest include GIS, urban information systems, quantitative analysis, anti-poverty law, and federally subsidized low-income housing policy, law, and history. In particular, my research focuses on (1) how public and non-profit organizations can leverage information technology and administrative data to better serve low-income persons, families, and communities and (2) how to evaluate the accessibility of social services
