Hello World!

My name is Matt.  I am a doctoral student who has been published and has presented in multiple conferences on housing and transportation issues in urban areas, focused particularly on the inter-relationship between transportation infrastructure and housing markets.

Current projects:

–  Mapping affordable housing production in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego and Sacramento regions.

–  Evaluating the benefits of folding bikes loaned to working families in Woodland, CA

–  Understanding the drivers of public opinion on ride shares and transportation and housing ballot measures in San Francisco, CA.

-Understanding how federal affordable housing policy scales and thresholds limit the effectiveness of demand-side affordable housing programs (like Sec 8 and Choice Vouchers).

I have a Masters in Public Policy from Oregon State University, and am currently funded for my PhD at U.C. Davis by an Eisenhower Graduate Fellowship from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The first and last of these will form the basis of my dissertation research.
