Planning for An Equal and Sustainable Future
The ongoing technology revolution changes our ways of living, working, traveling, and communicating and redefines our cities. To inform planning and policymaking and promote equality and sustainability in our society, I have dedicated my research career to investigating these changes and understand their social, economic, and environmental impact. My doctoral study and recent projects have examined people’s attitudes and behavioral responses to on-demand ridesourcing and autonomous vehicles, the mobility and accessibility of those using ridesourcing services, the impact of ridesourcing regulations, the influence of sea level rises on infrastructure and job access, and transportation barriers for vulnerable populations such as single parents, women, racial and ethnic minorities, the poor, and those who may suffer from social exclusion.
My dissertation proposal, "Travel behavior of ridesourcing: A data-driven analysis," was selected by the Regional Science Association International (RSAI) as the winner of the 2020 Czamanski Dissertation Award!
My paper "What is the elasticity of sharing a ridesourcing trip?" was selected as the winner of the 2020 IACP Karen R. Polenske Best Student Paper Award!
The award, established in honor of Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Karen R. Polenske, a prominent regional economist and a leading scholar of China’s sustainable development, is given annually to International Association for China Planning (IACP) student members.
