Professor Blumenberg's research examines the effects of urban structure--the spatial location of residents, employment, and services--on economic outcomes for low-wage workers, and on the role of planning and policy in shaping the spatial structure of cities.   Dr. Blumenberg has investigated the relationship between the spatial structure of urban areas and economic equality; gender and U.S. local economic development planning; neighborhood economies and welfare dynamics; the travel behavior of welfare recipients and immigrants; and interagency-collaboration.  

Her current research examines (1) ethnic enclaves, employment, and travel behavior; (2) the relationship between spatial cognition and travel mode; and (3) the transportation expenditure burden of low-income families.

Professor Blumenberg teaches courses on planning history and theory, urban poverty, transportation and economic development, and urban policy.
