I am a PhD candidate in Transportation Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. In addition to my studies, I am a research assistant in the Urban Transportation Information Lab, led by Dr. Kari Watkins. 

My research is focused on how we can better use urban spaces to build healthier, more livable cities. I am currently working on a project to classify metropolitan areas by factors that contribute transit ridership, and analyze trends within them.

Before starting my doctoral studies, I worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Transportation Safety Team.
