Welcome to my personal web page! My research and professional interests focus on the interactions between transportation and the social and economic processes in households and urban systems, with an emphasis on applied research relevant for the transportation sector. Past work explored topics of equity, environmental justice, sustainability, social indicators, and economic resiliency.

From 2017 until 2023, I worked at the Transportation Research Board where I managed a portfolio of projects in the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. NCHRP supports applied research in transportation, focusing on research needs of state transportation agencies. Read more about NCHRP HERE.

Prior to joining NCHRP, I was in a doctoral program at the Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien/Vienna University of Economics and Business in Vienna, Austria. My dissertation topic was location affordability–the inter-related costs of housing and transportation–in U.S. metropolitan regions and how planning agencies are including this issue in their long-range transportation plans.

Dissertation title: “The Link Between Housing Affordability & Transport Costs: Implications for Transport Agencies in an Environment of Accountability”
