Mitchell Hall 206

Prof. Ghose’s research interests intersect Critical GIS, urban geography, and political economy. Her research questions center around poverty, inequality, and social justice. She has conducted decade-long research on public participation GIS among traditionally marginalized citizen groups, to examine how GIS technologies can be used as modes of resistance to combat structural inequities and inner-city poverty. As part of this research agenda, she has also examined social activism and grassroots community organizing in the inner-city, and explored collaborative planning programs that are used in inner-city redevelopment.
