research overview

  • Communities invest millions in bicycling infrastructure, often based on scant evidence. Part of my research develops empirical evidence about the effectiveness of bicycle planning efforts. I show that cyclists go two miles out of their way for a bicycle path; but also that bike paths might suppress property values. I aim to shape policies on land use/transportation and advance local planning efforts that further sustainable infrastructure. I do this via projects like Design for Health (US APA’s National Planning Excellence Award for Best Practice) where I developed health impact assessments, research briefs and other tools for planners to assess policies. My recent activities ensure (1) practitioners get relevant and accessible research; (2) policy questions and initiatives are guided by robust and transparent performance measures. These are part of a wider research program aiming to help planners and policy makers make evidence-based decisions that further sustainable communities.
