Ask me about: Intersection of urban planning and health disparities

Dr. Malo André Hutson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California at Berkeley and Associate Director of the Institute of Urban and Regional Development within the College of Environmental Design. Dr. Hutson’s research is concerned with how neighborhood, community, and metropolitan-level factors affect the health and quality of life for urban residents both domestically and globally. Specifically, his research is at the intersection of urban planning and health disparities. He also researches how urban policies affect the development of urban space and health. Recently, Dr. Hutson completed a book The Urban Struggle for Economic, Environmental, and Social Justice: Deepening Their Roots as part of Routlege’s Equity, Justice, and Sustainable City series where he looked at development and neighborhood change in Boston, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. He recently commenced a research project in Chile where he is working in collaboration with universities, government agencies, and NGOs to develop a sustainable integrated neighborhoods plan and the redevelopment of a large public housing development in the Maule Region.

Dr. Hutson earned both his bachelor’s of art in sociology and masters of city planning degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his doctorate in urban and regional planning from the School of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to joining the faculty at Berkeley, Dr. Hutson was a Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar at the Center for Social Epidemiology and Population Health in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.
