Ryan Petteway is an assistant professor in the School of Public Health. He conducts participatory research at the nexus of public health, public housing, and “placemaking,” making use of information and communication technologies to democratize and enhance research and practice processes.
Petteway’s current work examines place, health, and embodiment among public housing residents — with the aim of facilitating permanent mechanisms for including the voice of residents within local placemaking decisions and processes. Underlying this work are core notions of power, inclusion, and accountability in public health research and practice, and avenues for participatory urban governance. In this spirit, he’s currently developing a STEM-based high school curriculum focused on the social determinants of health, health equity, and participatory research.
Prior to his doctoral training, Petteway served as social epidemiologist and chief epidemiologist at the Baltimore City Health Department.
