Hanna M Mattila
I am a 2018–2020 Government of Finland/David and Nancy Speer Visiting Professor (Associate Professor) in Finnish Studies at the Department of Geography, Environment and Society and at the Institute for Global Studies. My research interests include planning theory, critical theory, planning law, and comparative perspectives on planning systems & practices. I am visiting the U of M from Aalto University, Finland, where I work in the research group of Spatial planning and transportation engineering. Here in Minnesota, my main goal is to deepen my knowledge on US planning systems and carry out comparative studies on North-American and European planning practices.
