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.

Her recent projects include analyses of the travel behavior of special population groups including low-income adults, immigrants, and youth; the effects of the economy and increasing gas prices on the travel behavior and transportation assets in low-income communities; and the relationship between residential location, automobile ownership, and employment outcomes among the poor.    

Professor Blumenberg holds a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master's degree and PhD in urban planning from the University of California, Los Angeles.  She teaches courses on planning history and theory, poverty and inequality, transportation and economic development, and urban policy.
