Research:

Mr. Kaylor’s research focuses on the spatially uneven distribution of broadband infrastructure that threatens to create a technological underclass.  He has worked on a state-wide project in Kentucky that demonstrates how local community engagement can play a crucial role in infrastructure development, studying information technology as a complement to the principles and techniques of smart growth.  He has been assessing local adoption of web-based services by local governments since 2000, tracking changes in broadband deployment, shifts in adoption and utilization patterns, and changes in land use and urban form.
