Buckman’s research is driven by community resiliency in relation to the built form. He is interested in various aspects of community resiliency, especially its impact on economic, social, and urban design issues. In this regard he studies Canal Oriented Development as a sustainable placemaking method within polycentric cities as well community resiliency as it pertains to Great Lake communities, especially how communities deal with climate change within their master plans.

Buckman is presently working as a Post Doc under the guidance of Dr Richard Norton on a project that is studying collaborative planning and the impact of climate change on Great Lakes communities entitled: Restoring, Retrofitting and Recoupling Great Lakes Sorelands. This study includes not only an academic component but also includes a practitioner component in which they will be producing a “playbook” that other shoreland Michigan communities can use to fold climate change issues into their master planning process.
