Dr. Mumford is an architecture and urban design historian. He is especially interested in efforts to design urban environments since the advent of new transportation and other technologies around the mid-19th century, which also coincided with some of the first public health legislation to regulate the urban environment. Many of the urban directions advocated at that time were in part efforts to address public health issues, which continue to shape urban environments today.
