This frequently involves multi-method investigations into housing segregation and the racially uneven geographies of sub/urban development. For a recent example of this work, see here. I also like to produce GIS data products that assist researchers and organizations working on similar questions. For example, with my colleagues, I recently produced a dataset containing housing unit count estimates for every census tract in the US going back to 1940. The paper. The data. The interactive map.
