I am a social scientist and urban planner interested in the politics of urban development. My research uses transportation and land use as a window into the (dis)functions of society, paying particular attention to the equity issues of urban infrastructure investment and land use regulation processes in American cities.
I have worked for community and non-profit organizations, academic institutions and as an independent consultant. I am currently on the faculty of the University of North Texas, as one of the inaugural faculty for the Bachelor’s of Arts in Urban Planning and Policy. I can be reached at Lauren.Fischer@unt.edu.
