Principal, Ren Thomas Research & Planning
Associate Professor, School of Planning
I research affordable housing choices (rental, co-operative, and non-profit housing), and policy comparison and analysis.
My focus is international case studies in transit-oriented development, transportation choices & patterns.
I research policy learning among planners, and am a Founding Fellow at the MacEachen Institute of Public Policy and Governance.

Links to books, academic writing, freelance writing, and planning reports.

I have found Professor Thomas to be truly dedicated to her role as a planning professor and to revitalizing the professional planning community in Halifax.
