Research & Professional Service

My CV is available upon request.

I was selected as an Eisenhower Fellow for the 2015-2016 academic year by the U.S. Department of Transportation. In the spring of 2015, I received the Citizen Scholar Award from the Virginia Tech Graduate School. In 2014, I was awarded a Graduate Student Scholarship from the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Virginia Tech Alumni Association, and a Graduate Student Scholarship from the DC Chapter of the Women’s Transportation Seminar.

My research primarily relies on quantitative methods and focuses on travel demand management and commuter benefits, multimodalism, active transportation, and the application of economic tools. Selected publications, reports, and presentations include:

My outreach has focused on civic engagement and youth development related to transportation. I served on the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Transportation Planning Board’s Citizens Advisory Committee for the 2013, 2014, and 2015 terms. In 2014-2015, I served on the City of Alexandria’s Parking Standards for New Development Task Force. Since 2013, I have been a Virginia Tech Bicycle Ambassador.  I have also contributed to Phoenix Bikes, the Arlington Bicycle Advisory Committee,  and the Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. In 2011, I coordinated Alexandria’s first counts for the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project, and prepared the resulting report: Non-Motorized Travel in the City of Alexandria.

As an undergraduate student, I contributed to a 200-page report outlining a menu of practical strategies available for adoption in support of Middlebury College’s carbon neutrality initiative. The Board of Trustees subsequently approved a commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2016.
