Dunn, James BW


Department chair and urban geographer James Dunn believes in the importance of building environments that allow marginalized populations, such as older adults and people with disabilities, to navigate through their neighbourhoods. He studies living communities as they undergo transformations, and explores how built environments affect the mental and physical health in neighbourhoods and communities. His current research programs focus on how economic and social policies influence social aspects of population health, as well as the importance of building accessible communities which can directly affect the health and mobility of people living within those communities.
