Award or Honor Receipt
Professor Krizek received a Fulbright award to research the role of accessibility and bicycling in promoting sustainable cities in Italy and elsewhere. He heads the Active Communities/Transportation (ACT) Research Group and publishes in the areas of travel behavior, neighborhood accessibility, health, and planning and sustainable development. His research focuses on how land use and transportation policies influence individuals’ decisions about where to live as well as how to move about their communities. His goal is to develop land use policies that promote sustainable and affordable urban travel (including walking and bicycling) and enhance urban livability. Professor Krizek teaches courses in land use and transportation and planning methods, as well as a PhD-level seminar on research design. From 2007 to 2012, he served as director of the PhD program in Design and Planning and is the outreach and education coordinator for sustainability efforts on the Boulder campus. Professor Krizek is a founding co-editor of the Journal of Transport and Land Use Research and was chair of the Transportation Research Board Committee (a division of the National Research Council) on Telecommunications and Travel.
