Associate Professor Victoria Beard joined the faculty of CRP in January. Beard, a Fulbright Scholar, began her career in academia at the University of Wisconsin–Madison before moving to the University of California–Irvine, where she has been teaching and doing research for the past eight years.
Beard's research focuses on the relationship between community-based planning and poverty in the Global South, and explores the intersection of collective action, social movements, transnational processes, and planning. She is teaching a course titled Planning and Poverty in the Global South this semester.
