Sternberg’s main areas of research and teaching combine urban studies, Latin American studies, and local urban politics in both U.S. and Latin American settings. Her work has examined the relationship between neoliberal governance, informal economy and conditions of employment in Argentina, the politics of contemporary Chicago, and contemporary “non-white” gentrification in the neighborhoods of Bronzeville and Pilsen.

She has published in Urban StudiesUrban GeographyGeoforum and Urban Affairs Review, and book chapters on the topics of middle-class identities, urban sustainability in Buenos Aires, and neoliberalism in Chicago.
