About Markus Moos

Markus is an Assistant Professor in the School of Planning at University of Waterloo who studies urban generational dynamics and inequality. He founded the Generationed Cityproject as a way to bring age and generation into debates and research about housing and employment opportunities. Markus’s current work focuses on young adults and Millennials. He takes a big-picture approach to his research, noting:

“Our intent is not to argue that age and generational status are somehow more important that other factors shaping society—our aim is to suggest that we need to pay closer attention to how current employment and housing challenges are impacting different generations since we are living in a context of rapid societal change that makes generational differences more pronounced….And we will need input from all generations if we are to deal with the growing economic uncertainty and inequalities around the globe affecting not just Millennials, but people across all current and future generations.”
