Andrew Van Leuven

Hometown: Katy, TX (born in Worcester, MA)

Undergrad Institution and Major:
B.S. in Geography, emphasis in Urban & Regional Planning, Brigham Young University

Graduate Institutions and Major:
M.A. in Geography & Urban Studies, Temple University

Relevant Professional Experience:
Internship at Montgomery County (PA) Planning Commission, walkability studies

Research Interests:
I am primarily interested in urban and regional economic development and the design and implementation of public policies that facilitate such development. More specifically, I am interested in how small towns and cities are able to revitalize their local economies via downtown redevelopment efforts and other efforts at job creation and property reinvestment. I am also interested in the patterns of regional growth and decline experienced by metropolitan economies, especially those that are resilient to long-term structural changes.

Funded Appointments:
Graduate Research Associate – Ohio Manufacturing Institute, Dr. Ned Hill
