Dr. Gardner is interested in urban geography, neighborhood change and migration. Three current projects : 1) Using linked data to examine the migration patterns and mortality among long-term residents of New Orleans who were exposed to Hurricane Katrina. 2) Using linked data to look at neighborhood change, such as gentrifying neighborhoods but also neighborhoods in decline. 3) an effort to harmonize the data and documentation for decennial census and American Community Survey datasets.

His own research, as well as his support role for internal and external research projects, has given him considerable practical knowledge about the strengths and weaknesses of key research datasets that would be useful to those interested in establishing their own research projects in the FSRDC.
