The College of Architecture Research Forum occurs on the last Thursday of every month during the academic year, from 11 a.m. to noon. The speaker series at the Architecture Branch of the Tech Library seeks to both inform the community and boost collaborative efforts, both within and outside of the College of Architecture.

Dowell Myers, PhD, is a professor in the School of Policy, Planning, and Development at the University of Southern California. He is a demographer and urban planner who creates narratives to promote public understanding about pressing issues that affect our common future. His research emphasizes the linkage of demographic data (census, surveys, and projections) to trends in housing, workforce, education, taxpaying, voting, and immigration.
