PURPOSE

The primary goal of this laboratory is to develop and invest in students while examining how existing and novel means of transportation influence urban systems, and how our regions and neighbourhoods shape travel behaviour and human movement.

We hope to build better links between transportation-land use research and policy-making. Our research will identify how planning and policy can balance priorities given to environmental sustainability, population health, livability, social equity, and economic opportunity.

Planning is fun! With our research, we can strengthen means of evidence-based decision-making in a democracy.

Investing in students and developing them as young professionals with knowledge and skills that can strengthen city building processes is also critical to the long-term success of cities.
