Michael Hogan specializes in helping local policymakers translate economic trends into actionable, locally informed strategies for inclusive economic development. He is building on three years of experience in regional economic analysis, cost–benefit analysis, case study research, program evaluation, interview-based research, and geospatial analysis.

Mr. Hogan’s key focus areas include regional economic diversification and value chain–based strategies, as well as the linkage between the regional economy and urban development, including the built environment, transit access, and economic vibrancy.

His recent work includes an analysis of industry hiring needs and projections in the Research Triangle of North Carolina, best practices in neighborhood community and economic development projects, a dashboard for North Carolina’s engagement in the global economy, and sustainability of cluster-based economic development in Central America.
