Madeleine Hamlin

Madeleine Hamlin is currently a Ph.D. Student in Geography at Syracuse University.


Madeleine Hamlin is the co-author along with Professor Jesse Lecy of the case "Cross-sector Collaboration and Urban Revitalization in Buffalo, NY." The case examines the economic downturn that has resulted in the under-utilization of Buffalo’s urban neighborhoods, such as its downtown and the post-industrial waterfront of the Erie Canal Harbor.  Policymakers must find ways to revive these areas, both by stimulating economic development and by creating vibrant live-work communities to attract new residents. 

Madeleine Hamlin is currently a Geography PhD Student at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, where she also earned her MPA and Geography MA in 2017. Before embarking on her doctoral studies, she served as the 2017 Polikoff-Gautreaux Fellow at BPI, a Chicago-based law and policy center where she worked as a Policy Analyst in the areas of Housing & Community Development and Justice Reform. Madeleine also holds a BA from the University of California, Berkeley.
