"housing is the root of most social injustices"
Housing prices are formally tracked only in large metros. We study and develop new indices to track housing price indices for small cities and even neighborhoods
Gentrification and Displacement
Most gentrification metrics are based on Census data, which does not allow to track residential mobility. We study and developed new algorithms for tracking residential mobility at the household level to separate gentrification moves from regular moves.
Housing physical conditions
We apply artificial intelligence models to identify houses in need or repairs, aiming to help targeting resources to residents in need of housing rehabilitation
We look at how the environment affects housing and socioeconomic outcomes
"Can we all get along?"
We study how to balance economic growth with socioeconomic outcomes.
Do we have a market failure?
We study regional economic markets and their ability to produce equitable outcomes
