I primarily teach courses on transportation policy and planning. In recent years I have taught graduate-level courses on Transportation and Land Use: Urban Form, Public Transit and Shared Mobility, and Transportation, Economics, Finance, and Policy. I have also occasionally taught an undergraduate course in Transportation Geography and a graduate Comparative International Transportation Field Course, which involved traveling with students to Berlin, London, and Mexico City. My courses cover topics that range from conceptual to applied, and weave questions of history, politics, and equity throughout. Students can typically choose from a menu of assignments connected to policy and planning practice to fit their interests, which typically entail field work and field trips as well.
