Urban Development, Disaster Recovery, Rebuilding After Disasters, Post-Katrina Rebuilding
John Travis Marshall, assistant professor of law, is interested in the challenges associated with the growth and contraction of urban areas. In particular, Marshall studies private, nonprofit and government interventions to promote long-term urban recovery from crisis and disasters. From 2007 to 2011, he was a Rockefeller Foundation Fellow with the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority. In that role, Marshall advised NORA on post-Hurricane Katrina implementation of the Authority’s urban revitalization efforts, including land acquisition, development, and disposition programs.
