We are happy to announce that a team of researchers led by Mr. Dennis Smith of FSU’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning secured a $348,000 grant from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. This funding will be used to support planning research aimed at improving resiliency. I am happy to be a part of the team!
Congratulations to Mr. Kyusik Kim of FSU Geography for having his paper on commuting dynamics during the Great Recession published in the Journal of Transport Geography. The paper uses a massive dataset in the Atlanta area to explore impacts on public vs. private sector workers.
Students interested in pursuing M.S. or Ph.D. degrees with a focus on transportation, GIS, commuting, disasters, and/or related topics encouraged to contact me and discuss their interests. There are opportunities for students wishing to enter one of our graduate programs beginning Spring or Fall 2019.
Here is a press release featuring my colleague (and former M.S. student) Dr. Michael Widener of the University of Cincinnati discussing some of our recent work integrating transportation data with food accessibility measures.
