Organization on the demographic allocation for Austin MSA s 2040 long range transportation plan Alejandra Reyes Teaching Assistant Originally from Zacatecas México Alejandra received her B A in Architecture at UC Berkeley and a M S in Community and Regional Planning at UT Austin Her Master s thesis evaluated recent housing and densification programs in Mexico City which meant to increase housing access and repopulate the urban core The main focus of this research which she has presented at a number of academic conferences Urban Affairs Association The International Studies Association and Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning was on local governance and how it influenced either positively or negatively the drafting and implementation of such programs As a Master s student she also collaborated with Dr Peter Ward on his research on Texas colonias and informal subdivisions and with Dr Elizabeth Mueller as a Graduate Research Assistant Her current research focuses on the implications of increasingly problematic rates of housing vacancy in various Mexican regions which are paradoxically coupled with persistent housing shortages She is particularly interested on studying the roles of the Mexican State and the market in reproducing such conditions and in driving housing production and urban development in an apparently unsustainable way in both socioeconomic and environmental terms A central hypothesis is that housing finance policy characterized by the liberalization of credit and its support to a monopolistic and speculative real estate sector may be fostering a mismatch between the private housing supply and the actual housing needs of the Mexican population Ariadna Reyes Sanchez Ph D in Community and Regional Planning Civil engineer and
