Assistant Professor of Urban & Regional Planning
PhD, University of Illinois at Chicago, 2012
Professor Greenlee’s interests lie primarily in the areas of housing policy, community development, and social equity in planning. His research focuses on the translation of federal, state, and local policies into on-the-ground practices. His recent research examines the residential location choices of low-income households participating in the Federal Housing Choice Voucher Program. Other recent research has examined the nature of housing market changes around military bases, and the distribution of spending within tax increment financing districts in Chicago. This research tends to combine GIS data visualization and spatial analysis with qualitative interview data.
During the Fall 2012 semester, he will teach a seminar on the housing crisis (UP-494AG) which focuses on exploring the economic, social, and political dimensions of current housing problems. This course involves engagement not only within the classroon, but also involves collaborative engagement with a neighborhood in Decatur, IL.
In Spring, 2013,he will teach Housing and Urban Policy Planning (UP 473), Urban and Regional Analysis (UP 505), and Survey Design and Analysis (UP 508).
Greenlee received his Ph.D. in Urban Planning and Policy from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2012. He also holds a Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Iowa and a Bachelor’s degree in English and Sociology from Grinnell College.
