Urban and Regional Planning
Mark is currently researching the public perception of planning policy language and how public perception influences the communicative process. His research aims to identify potential biases built into the professional and academic language of planning, and how planning policy may be framed in ways to become more digestible and agreeable to a wider range of people. Additional areas of research include urban branding and competition, strategic planning, urban design, tourism, and historic preservation.
