Joe Grengs researches the relationships between transportation policy and urban development patterns. He is currently studying how suburbanization influences poverty concentration and social inequality, with a focus on recent changes in national transportation policy. Other research interests include methods of spatial analysis, urban politics, and new forms of social movements emerging in the field of transportation.
