Meredith Greif (2006)
Meredith Greif is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University. Her research is at the intersection of race, space, and housing. She has shown how homelessness and housing insecurity result from, and perpetuate, racial and economic inequalities. Her work has highlighted the ways in which housing insecurity is self-perpetuating, leading to mental health problems, risky sexual behavior, and addiction that subsequently heighten vulnerability to future housing insecurity. She is currently studying supply-side sources of housing insecurity, including landlordsâ€™ business practices pertaining to evictions, harassment, property disrepair, and discrimination based on race and source of income.
