Join us to learn about the world-class public health research being conducted at Berkeley! Each week features a different, student-nominated faculty member presenting their latest and greatest research.

Malo André Hutson is a nationally recognized scholar in the areas of community and economic development, urban policy and politics, and urban health. As an Assistant Professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California at Berkeley, Dr. Hutson’s research is concerned with how neighborhood, community, and metropolitan-level factors affect the health and quality of life for urban residents. Specifically, his research is at the intersection of urban planning and health disparities. He also researches how urban policies affect the development of urban space and health.

Dr. Hutson earned both his bachelor’s of art in sociology and masters of city planning degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his doctorate in urban and regional planning from the School of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to joining the faculty at Berkeley, Professor Hutson was a Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar at the Center for Social Epidemiology and Population Health in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.
