Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning and Assistant Director of the Population Research Center (PRC) at Portland State University, is a broadly trained population geographer focusing on the sociospatial implications of demographic change, with specific focus on mobility and migration. He earned his PhD in 2010 at University of Arizona, examining the political effects of domestic migration in the U.S. His more recent research explores the importance of economic opportunity, amenities, and other factors on the longitudinal migration patterns of young, college-educated workers to U.S. metro regions. During his ILS-fellowship he is working with the "City as a Social Environment" research group where his research will focus on gentrification, displacement, and neighborhood change in Dusseldorf and Portland, Oregon.

    Dr. Naomi Shimpo, Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Tsukuba in Japan, majored in landscape planning and ecology and gained her PhD at the University of Tokyo. She also studied at Vienna University of Technology in Austria as exchange student and did some researches at Lincoln University in New Zealand as visiting scholar. Her main research interests are in functions of green infrastructure and especially urban gardening related to social integration and urban resilience examined through social survey and spatial analysis. During her stay as guest researcher she joined the research group “Built Environment” in Aachen where she developed her research proposal under supervision of the head of the research group, Runrid Fox-Kämper, with the aim of applying for an internationally competitive fellowship to finance a longer research stay at the ILS in the future.

As a demographer, he also manages projects for local agencies that contract with PRC for population estimates and forecasts for custom geographic areas and K-12 (kindergarten to 12th grade) school enrollment forecasts. At ILS, Mr. Rynerson will be collaborating with the "Geoinformation and Monitoring" and "The City as Social Space" groups on a comparative study of re-urbanization and displacement of socially disadvantaged groups in Düsseldorf and Portland, focusing on the quantitative part of the study, while colleagues from PRC and ILS prepare for more qualitative research to be conducted later this spring and summer.
