Hamlin's research is primarily focused on the spatial dimensions of green infrastructure.

Hamlin is most interested in how these spatial inventories and analyses can be applied by practitioners, planners, and researchers to improve community resilience and livability, preserving our environmental assets and amenities for humans and non-humans alike.

Hamlin's previous research focused on drought, water conflict, and collective action in the Oregon-California Klamath River Basin; a spatial analysis of pesticide use in California's Central Valley; the economic values of different environmental assets and amenities, and how these might change depending on location; and managing risk in river and floodplain systems.
