As the author of “Reshaping Metropolitan America,” Dr. Nelson is highly regarded for his empirical look at how cities are growing and evolving across America.  During his presentation, he will review his findings on population, household, housing trends and preferences and explore redevelopment opportunities for the Albuquerque Metro area through 2040.
