Lehigh Valley Focused Research

The Lehigh Valley, located in eastern Pennsylvania, is an excellent place to study mid-sized metropolitan regions.  My research examines governmental systems, community perceptions about existing policies, and general quality of life concerns.

Much of my community based research is undertaken on behalf of the Lehigh Valley Research Consortium, which engages faculty from area colleges and universities in cross-institutional, interdisciplinary research.  As Founding Director of the LVRC, I helped to create a regional resource for residents seeking an understanding of our region across multiple disciplines and perspectives.
