Hi, my name is Mischa Young, I am a course instructor in the Human Geography Department at the University of Toronto. My research focuses on emerging transportation technologies and the future mobility – of both goods and individuals – within the urban landscape. Lately, my research has centred on the impacts of ridehailing services (e.g. Uber and Lyft) to help inform regulations and policies to govern this mode effectively. Beyond researching how to leverage new mobility technologies to design more equitable and sustainable cities, I am also an avid cyclist and an urban tree enthusiast!
