His research publications include analyses of the origins of the zoning map, New York City waterfront planning, and metropolitan parks and open space planning in Boston. He has published articles and review essays in Journal of Planning Education and Research, Journal of Planning History, Journal of Urban History, and The Public Historian. In 2013, Moga was awarded a Mellon Foundation Fellowship for research at the New-York Historical Society. He is currently completing a book on the history of urban lowlands and American city form.

Moga brings a strong visual sense to his work—making photographs as fieldwork, using visual analysis as a research method. He is passionate about questions of how people shape place, experience nature in our surroundings, and identify patterns and meanings in the landscape. In his research in city planning, he seeks to understand how people have defined urban problems and how they have articulated a vision of a better city.
