I am a transportation geographer with a particular research focus on the spatial dimensions of the adoption and use of emerging transportation technologies and services. My research areas include: 1) how early alt-fuel vehicle adopters evaluate or use sparse refueling infrastructure and implications for future station planning methods, 2) how prospective users of automated and driverless vehicles consider travel with these technologies under certain conditions and the resultant potential impacts for cities and regions, and 3) planning for infrastructure for bicyclists, pedestrians, and other vulnerable road users.

I apply spatial and quantitative analysis in my research, with an emphasis on the collection of primary data to inform decisions that can help facilitate a transition to a more sustainable transportation system.
