Elizabeth Kneebone is the Research Director for the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at the University of California, Berkeley. Elizabeth’s research expertise includes trends and dynamics in the geographic concentration and distribution of poverty in the United States, and how the built environment, housing, and land use policies shape access to economic opportunity. Before joining the Center, Elizabeth was a Fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program, where most recently she led the Program’s work on regional solutions to increase and diversify housing options in higher opportunity and priority redevelopment areas. She also has researched and written extensively on urban and suburban poverty, and is co-author of the book Confronting Suburban Poverty in America (Brookings Press, 2013).
