Dr. Fitzgerald is professor and director of the graduate program in Law and Public Policy and a Senior Research Fellow at the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University. Her third book, Emerald Cities: Urban Sustainability and Economic Development (Oxford Univ.

Her 2006 book, Moving Up in the New Economy, (Cornell Univ. Press) focuses on how to build career ladders for low-income workers. Fitzgerald has published in academic journals such as Economic Development Quarterly, Urban Affairs Quarterly, Urban Affairs and the political journal, The American Prospect. Her academic and consulting work has been supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur, Annie E. Casey, Rockefeller Brothers, Rockefeller, Surdna, Century, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations.
