Bio: Greg Hall is a graduate student in the Department of Sociology. An urban sociologist studying housing inequality in the U.S., he asks how housing instability and structural pressures shape the ways that low-income individuals construct their actions, behaviors, and lives. He looks to extend his current research to focus on how marginal groups, such as the formerly incarcerated, construct their housing searches and situations post-incarceration and how a collective identity may benefit the construction of better housing policy.
