HHH Prof. Allen delivers seminars in China

Ryan Allen, Associate Professor and Director of the Urban and Regional Planning program at the Humphrey School, traveled to China for 10 days in June. Allen delivered seminars at Tongji University, Beijing Normal University and Tsinghua University, and met with key faculty leaders at each university to learn more about common research interests and potential collaborations between the universities and the Humphrey School. He also found time to tour the Great Wall, the Forbidden City Palace Museum, the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum, and a world famous "hot pot" restaurant (with Associate Professor Jason Cao as his culinary tour guide).

Ryan Allen is an associate professor of community and economic development in the urban and regional planning area. His research focuses on the community and economic development processes of immigrants in the United States.  Recently, he has focused on how households have responded to the foreclosure crisis as well as how the foreclosure crisis has affected neighborhood quality in the U.S.  He is also interested in immigrant home ownership and entrepreneurship.  His practical research approach to these topics draws upon the strengths of multiple disciplines, including sociology, economics, and political science, and takes advantage of quantitative and qualitative research methods.
