As a result of these areas of inquiry, she has developed a strong foundation in the areas of revitalization, housing policy, and community development.

His research focuses on the roles of immigrants in community regeneration, the responses of governments to the presence of immigrants, and the ways that transnational relationships shape spaces that immigrants inhabit.
