Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in road design and how it influences safety of and usage by nonmotorized users.  I am also interested in conflict analysis and avoidance maneuvers by nonmtorized users. 

PhD Project

My dissertation research, titled Cyclist Path Choices Through Shared Space Intersections in England, looked at how cyclists ride through shared, and nonshared intersections. 1700 individual cyclist paths were plotted and analyzed. 

Vision Statement

My interests in nonmotorized transportation, landscape architecture, landscape ecology, and urban design are all interconnected and reflect my passion for sustainability and environmentalism. I believe making our roads safer and more welcoming for all users will encourage more people to ride and walk more thus benefiting our cities and environment.
