Rebecca Kemper's research is concerned with institutional and neighbor social networks within urban neighborhoods deemed as economically distressed. She is the founder of Equitable Urban Futures, a Columbus, Ohio social justice think-tank and is a contributor to the Columbus African American News Journal, edited by Ray Miller II. Her professional planning work is concerned with creating equality in knowledge structures between institutions and the communities they serve for holistic understanding and practical solutions. Kemper's interest in the complex institutional connections towards communities stems from her Basque heritage.

One of her passions is tracing the heritage of the city planning profession.
