Personal and professional interests
Magda Maaoui_Columbia.jpg

My research interests lie at the confluence of housing policy, real estate development, neighborhood change and spatial justice. I am currently investigating methods to evaluate recent affordable housing policy programs in American and French metropolitan areas, in how they miss the boat and perpetuate genealogies of inequality and segregation.

Normalienne Agrégée with an academic and professional experience acquired in Europe (France, Denmark), Africa (Algeria, Senegal) and the Americas (United States, Costa Rica), projects I have been working on range from sustainable policy to education, community planning and neighborhood revitalization.

My research has been featured in popular news sources including Le MondeBondy Blog and the France Culture public radio. Most importantly, my competencies provide me with a fascination for urban politics and community development - a fascination which also drives my personal and nonprofit engagements.
