Speaker Bio
Prior to serving as Research Manager at Grounded Solutions Network, Vince was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies at the University of Florida, where he spent over six years conducting research on affordable housing. Vince led a project to develop an online housing search tool for low-income households to find affordable, available housing in opportunity-rich neighborhoods. His publications appear in leading peer-reviewed urban planning and policy journals such as Housing Policy Debate and Urban Affairs Review.

Vince received his PhD from University of Florida’s College of Design, Construction, and Planning. His dissertation focused on relocation decisions and location outcomes of government subsidized low-income renters.

Additionally, Vince had experience in planning and community development from non-profit, local government, and consulting perspectives. His commitment to serving people and communities is anchored with a blend of professional experience: a designer appreciating aesthetics and creativity, a planner longing for understanding various forces that drive the built environment, and an advocate of the poor and promoting social integration.
