My research interests were shaped by a ten-year career as a transportation policy advocate. I worked for several non-profit groups on local, state and federal level transportation policy campaigns, conducting analysis and building grassroots coalitions in support of public transit and bicycle investment. After I completed my Masters in 2006, I spent a year in Hamburg, Germany researching road pricing and transit oriented development policy and practice. I then worked as a senior associate with a national transportation consulting firm. At Berkeley, I have worked on several research projects with my advisors, and served as Editor of the Berkeley Planning Journal.
My dissertation explores the relationship between transit investment, congestion charging, travel behavior and economic geography in London from 1990 to 2010. As public policy increasingly sets VMT reduction targets, as in London and California, we must better understand how to achieve long-term changes in travel patterns, at scale. How transportation policies affect the location choices of major employers has major implications for regional commute patterns. I spent the 2013-14 academic year in London conducting fieldwork for this project.
