Jennifer Clark, associate professor in the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy, was appointed as deputy editor-in-chief for the flagship journal Regional Studies (RS) as of May 1.  The distinctive purpose of RS is to systematically connect insights from the different disciplines to help understand region and city evolution at a subnational level.

“After recently celebrating the first 50 years of Regional Studies, I am eager to work with David Bailey and the rest of our experienced and dedicated editorial team to guide Regional Studies into the next fifty years of academically rigorous and policy relevant research on cities and regions,” says Clark. “I look forward to welcoming new scholars into our academic community and highlighting the research that will move regional theory, analysis, and policy forward to meet the challenges of a changing regional world.”

Under Clark’s leadership, Regional Studies will continue to develop as the leading journal in the development of theories, concepts, empirical analysis, and policy debate in the field of regional studies. She will ensure that the journal continues to advance the field of regional studies, and that issues related to regional studies will continue to interest and inform the journal’s international readership.

Clark earned her doctoral degree from Cornell University, a master’s degree from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, and a bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. She currently teaches courses on urban and regional economic development theory, analysis, and practice and research design methods. She specializes in theory and analysis of the spatial organization of economic activity and regional economic development policy.
