Jason C. Knight

Knight’s research currently focuses on not just mapping the patterns we see with vacant, abandoned, and tax delinquent properties, but now moving toward understanding how policy plays a role, either improving or exacerbating conditions. He has presented on the duality of Buffalo as not merely a shrinking city as known among researchers but more clearly a divided, dual city of concentrated disadvantaged juxtaposed with islands of affluence.
