His research interests include regional economics, public finance, and state and local fiscal analysis.

Before joining the Philadelphia Fed in 2009, Flora was a fiscal analyst and principal planner for Hillsborough County City-County Planning Commission in Florida. During his tenure, he developed a fiscal impact estimates of land development (FIELD) model, which tested the financial feasibility of comprehensive plans for Hillsborough County and Tampa, Temple Terrace, and Plant City. He also worked as an urban/regional planner in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. In addition, he was the regional economist at PNC Bank Corp, an associate editor on the editorial board of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and an adjunct professor of regional economics and urban studies at the University of Pittsburgh.

He also served as founding board member, chairperson, and treasurer of the North Point Breeze Planning and Development Corporation in Pittsburgh.
