Nicholas Marantz, an associate professor of urban planning and public policy, and Paul Lewis, an associate professor of politics and global studies at Arizona State University, have co-authored a book that combines their research into issues surrounding homelessness in California. Regional Governance and the Politics of Housing in the San Francisco Bay Area explores the housing situation facing 101 cities in the Bay Area. Marantz credits UCI’s academic environment with helping birth the book. “The work that many of our Master of Urban and Regional Planning students do feeds into the classroom discussions that we have, and that inspires my thinking,” he says. “We also have a terrific cohort of Ph.D. students who, like many of the faculty, are doing cutting-edge research that pushes me to think critically about these issues.”
