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.
With colleagues from FSU’s Department of Urban and Regional Planning, some of our work with the Florida Department of Transportation looking at aging populations and alternative transportation services was recently published in Case Studies in Transportation. The paper makes use of a detailed survey of service providers.
I’m pleased to announce that I have joined the Editorial Board of the journal Travel Behavior and Society (Elsevier). I look forward to serving the transportation community in this new role.
In February 2013, I was appointed to serve as a U.S. Editor for the international journal Transportation (Springer). I look forward to working with the transportation community in this capacity.
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.
Our latest work on commuting and jobs-housing balance has just been published in Applied Geography. This paper works with a relatively new Census database known as LEHD to analyze commuting trends over the last several years. It uses the local Tallahassee area as a case study. FSU graduate student Daniel Schleith was a coauthor on the study.
Our most recent publication from the mobile objects project deals with determining where a mobile object might of been in instances where location data are unavailable. In this case, the focus in on the issue of missing location data in travel surveys. The work was coauthored with FSU graduate student Brandon Zook and Dr. Joni Downs from USF and is in press in Computers, Environment, and Urban Systems.
Just now getting the chance to report on my trip to Columbus, OH for GIScience 2012 two weeks ago. It was a very busy event, as I was a part of three papers scheduled on the program. It was also nice visiting Columbus after having lived there about 10 years ago, and seeing how much it had changed. Overall, a great conference (e.g., we were well fed!) and looking forward to future meetings.
