Advancing sustainable transportation through applied research, policy guidance, and public service.

About Me

I'm a bike-riding cat dad who lives in Madison, Wisconsin. I love cities, main streets, and the ways they connect people.

I currently lead the State Smart Transportation Initiative at the University of Wisconsin, a joint project of COWS and Smart Growth America. I serve on the Transportation Commission and the Plan Commission for the City of Madison, along with serving as the president of CNU-Wisconsin.

I studied transportation engineering at the University of Connecticut and worked briefly on transportation reform initiatives at the Congress for the New Urbanism in Chicago.

My research has focused mainly on parking policy, accessibility analysis, and best practices among state transportation agencies. 

I co-edited a special issue of Research in Transportation & Business Management titled "[Re]Evaluating How We Value Transportation," and I have written several book chapters on parking, including one for Parking and the City.

I work with transportation professionals across the U.S., including staff at state and local DOTs, to implement policies and practices that support safe and equitable access to opportunities. 

My work leverages data analytics, emerging best practices, and knowledge-sharing to bridge gaps between scientific research and real world outcomes.
