Natalie Prochaska Ph.D. Candidate

Hometown: Champaign, IL

Where did you go for undergrad and what did you major in?

2015 M.A., Urban Planning, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Thesis title: “Bristol Place Neighborhood Plan: Urban Renewal in Post-Kelo Fiscal Policy Space”
2009 B.A., Political Science, University of Chicago

Research: My research focuses on financial segregation in city-building. I am interested in how access to capital restricts opportunity (regardless of mobility- or place-based investment strategies), and how communities are re-structuring the distribution of individual and collective risk in housing through CLTs and in business through CDFIs to create more resilient neighborhoods.
