Research and Background

My recent research focuses on mainstreaming public health considerations into transportation planning, design and implementation. I am currently a team member of a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored research study that analyzes and examines governance of transportation and environmental health in six global cities, and studies the forces that influence decisions that impact environmental health. This National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored research study will deepen understanding of the processes and outcomes of collaborative governance of environmental health. I am also a team member of a study that is developing performance measures for evaluating social media use in public transit agencies. During my career, I have authored more than 60 peer-reviewed papers and technical reports. I have organized and chaired numerous national and international conference workshops and sessions, and served on the editorial board of several scholarly journals. Currently, I am co-authoring a text book on the Nexus between Transportation and Health.
