Emily Tumpson Molina's research interests lie in urban problems and policy, with a particular focus on housing, and quantitative and geographic methods. Her recent work on the home foreclosure crisis has appeared in the Journal of Urban Affairs, City & Community, and Housing Policy Debate. Her first book, Housing America: Issues and Debates, explores why housing remains among the U.S.'s most enduring social problems. She directs the Center for the Study of Brooklyn and is currently at work on A People's Guide to New York City, an alternative tour guide that documents sites of oppression, resistance, struggle, and transformation across the five boroughs.

At Brooklyn College, she teaches courses in urban policy, data analysis, and the sociology of housing. Her courses facilitate students' engagement with New York's rich local data and case studies.
