Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Colorado Denver

I am currently a professor of Civil Engineering and affiliate professor in Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Colorado Denver, program director of the University Transportation Center through the Mountain Plains Consortium, and co-director of the Active Communities / Transportation (ACT) research group. I received my Professional Engineering (P.E.) license in 2003 and focus on transportation teaching and research dedicated to creating more sustainable urban infrastructures, particularly in terms of road safety, active transportation, and transit. Other recent teaching and research topics involve: transportation planning and land use modeling, parking, health, and street networks.

Having spent time in the private sector with Sasaki Associates, and Clough, Harbour and Associates, I have been working on planning and site design issues related to civil and transportation engineering for the last fifteen years. A native of Watertown, Massachusetts, I am a graduate of the University of Virginia, the University of Connecticut, a recipient of the Dwight Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship, and winner of the Charley V. Wootan Award for Outstanding TRB Paper in the field of Policy and Organization.
