A new assistant professor of urban planning, Michael Manville is returning to UCLA Luskin after receiving his MA and Ph.D. in urban planning from UCLA Luskin. Dr. Manville is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at Cornell University. His research examines the willingness of people and communities to finance different government services, and the tendency of local governments to hide the costs of transportation in the property market. Dr. Manville is particularly interested in how land use restrictions intended to fight traffic congestion can influence the supply and price of housing.
