Transportation researcher, educator, and policy advisor
I’m currently the Deputy Director at the State Smart Transportation Initiative, a network for state departments of transportation, operated by the University of Wisconsin and Smart Growth America.
I studied transportation engineering at the University of Connecticut (PhD, 2012) and worked briefly on transportation issues at the Congress for the New Urbanism in Chicago.
I live and bike in Madison, Wisconsin, where I also serve on the City's Transportation Commission and its Transportation Policy and Planning Board.
I work with transportation professionals across the U.S. to implement policies and standards that support safe and reliable urban accessibility.
My work leverages current research, Big Data, and modern analytics for practical, data-driven decision-making.
