Kasey is a fourth-year doctoral student in Sociology at The Graduate Center (CUNY). He is broadly interested in researching urban inequality at the neighborhood level. Specifically, his interests focus on housing inequality, residential segregation, affordable housing, neighborhood change, gentrification, and suburbanization. Kasey is working on developing a dissertation project that looks at how neighborhood patterns of inequality and residential segregation shape spatial patterns of neighborhood affordability for the middle class.
Currently, Kasey is a Stone Center Junior Scholar and Urban Studies Pre-Dissertation Fellow. He teaches Social Statistics at Hunter College and is a teaching Assistant for Statistics I in the Graduate Center’s Quantitative Methods in Social Science program. He also works as a research assistant for Paul Attewell in the sociology department, researching the income benefits for those with varying degrees of educational attainment.
This past Summer Kasey was a Connect NYC Fellow and interned in the Research and Evaluation Division of the New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development, where he helped to construct a dataset resulting from the Department's innovative Housing and Neighborhood Study.
Before that, Kasey worked as a Research Associate at the Center for Urban Research where he conducted labor market research for various CUNY colleges/universities, governmental institutions, and non-profits throughout the city. As a Digital Publics Fellow at the Center for Humanities, he developed a website that centralizes the various resources around rent regulation in New York City. He holds a Bachelors in Spanish Literature and Language and a Masters in Sociology.
