Description of Fellowship
Allan worked with Professor Justin de Benedictis-Kessner to synthesize data from US cities, including Boston and others, to research the equitable distribution of infrastructure resources such as sidewalks and street paving and the role of political participation in these patterns.
Through his work this summer, Allan looked to deepen his knowledge of municipal government decision-making and expanded his understanding of how politics plays a key role in successful infrastructure.
