Dillon Mahmoudi

I am Assistant Professor of Geography and Environmental Systems at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I’m an economic geographer whose research focuses on the nexus of regional economic development and new forms of capitalist production. More broadly, the common theme of technology undergirds and connects my research on labor market dynamics during industrial restructuring, geographies of urban inequality, and political ecology. Methodologically, I seek to combine advanced quantitative methods, critical GIS, and qualitative research.

My research spans the fields of planning, geography and science, technology and society. I split my overarching research interests across three broad projects -- all connected through economic geography, labor and technology. My dissertation research focuses on the expression of value in capitalist production. Specifically, my research focuses on the place-specific software production processes among different regions and the relationship between different software agglomerations (industry/firms/workers) and broad-based economic development, prosperity and inequality. More broadly, my research focuses on the regional socio-industrial re/configurations under cognitive-cultural capitalism. See more under research.
