Academic and professional background

  • PhD Urban Planning, McGill (2013)

Research interests

Urban regions are faced with a multitude of challenges, how decision-makers balance, prioritize and trade-off various—often-conflicting—environmental, economic, and social equity goals is a central concern of my research. I predominately examine this through transport systems and how various personal, institutional, and government decision-making processes affect growth and development of urban areas.

Current projects

  • Understanding how the transportation needs of disadvantaged populations and issues of social equity can be integrated into land use and transportation policies.     
  • Understanding how people and households of different socio-economic status respond to measures of local and regional accessibility.
  • Understanding behavior change in the context of sustainable transportation and its effects on health and well-being.
