Amanda MicklowAmanda Micklow is a PhD candidate in City and Regional Planning at Cornell University. Amanda’s research focuses on the impact of land use and transportation policies on marginalized populations. She uses gender, as it intersects with race, class, and age in the American suburb, to analyze the tensions that arise in our communities as populations change. An example of this research, “Not Your Mother’s Suburb,” was published in Urban Lawyer and profiled in OZY. Amanda’s other research interests include the preservation and commodification of queer space and also hegemonic masculinity within the field of urban planning.

Amanda’s dissertation uses a travel study of the New York metropolitan area to determine the impact of residential location and land use policy on commute time and modality. She was also a project lead in the 2014 Women and Aging survey; a national survey of practicing planners that asked about questions about gender and age sensitive planning practices in their communities. This work is part of an on-going collaboration between the Planning & Women Division of the American Planning Association and Cornell University and will also be integrated into Amanda’s dissertation research.

Prior to attending Cornell, Amanda worked for several years as a comprehensive planner for a large locality in Virginia. She earned both her Master of Urban and Regional Planning and B.A. in Political Science from Virginia Tech. Her master’s thesis, “Gender Implications of Euclidean Zoning,” won the Marsha Ritzdorf Award for Best Graduate Student Paper.
