My research interests include active transportation, social justice, and technology at the intersection of urban design and planning. I teach courses in Transportation Policy and Urban Mobility as part of the new Smart Mobility and Urban Analytics Master´s Program at OsloMet.
Recent work includes: the interaction between "carrots and sticks" in travel behavior decisions, social media tools and equitable community engagement, and the phenomenon of "scofflaw bicycling" - why bicyclists break the rules of the road and why drivers respond in aggressive ways to bicyclists.
I earned my PhD in Design and Planning from the University of Colorado Denver, where I was an NSF-IGERT Fellow in Sustainable Urban Infrastructure and a member of the Active Communities Transportation Research Group. I have a Master's of Urban and Environmental Planning and a Bachelor's in English (both from Arizona State University).
