A conversation on fintech mortgage lending and racism with guest Tyler Haupert, Ph.D candidate at GSAPP and facilitated by Eric Iglesias, MSRED ‘21 Candidate at GSAPP and a Graduate Research Assistant Fall '20 at the GSAPP Housing Lab
Tyler Haupert’s work focuses on the social, technological, economic, and regulatory mechanisms contributing to racial disparities, segregation and exclusion in urban areas. He has particular interests in mortgage lending, housing affordability, homelessness, neighborhood change, and educational equity, and strives to design studies that inform policy and produce actionable results for legislators, regulators, planners, and advocacy organizations. Tyler is currently a Fellow at the Columbia Population Research Center and has professional experience in the public education, affordable housing development, and research sectors, most recently at Skid Row Housing Trust and Columbia World Projects. He holds a Master in Urban Planning degree from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Pepperdine University.
This event is part of a series organized by the student team at GSAPP’s Housing Lab of informal interdisciplinary conversations on housing, race, racism, and whiteness during the fall 2020 semester, on Fridays between 1–2PM. Each session focuses on a specific theme, often with a guest expert practitioner or researcher on hand as a co-facilitator along with members of the Housing Lab student team. The series is part of the Housing Lab’s project to explicitly integrate an anti-racist agenda into its current engagements and methods of working.
