Ross’ research interest focuses on issues related to urban economics, economic development, and economic pedagogy. He is currently engaged in an attempt to analyze the spatial allocation of economic activity as it relates to minority populations in urban settings, examining the extent to which the populations are under- or over- served by particular retail industries. Another line of research investigates urbanization and poverty trends in post-apartheid South Africa. He is also in the initial stages of introducing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in his teaching and research activities. Ross is an assistant professor of economics at Morehouse College and the Director of the Economic Studies Abroad Program in South Africa.
