MY DAY JOB
I am an associate professor in the Civil, Geological, and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. My primary research interests are the overlapping area between driver behavior and traffic safety and operations, particularly at roundabouts, developing transportation solutions for rural areas, and applications of GIS in Civil Engineering.
MY CURRENT RESEARCH
My active research projects include: using unmanned aerial aircraft and photogrammetry to develop three-dimensional models of snow depths for avalanche mitigation and management in Atigun Pass, AK; exploring the link between personal-use subsistence activities and motor vehicle crashes; and documenting the promises and challenges of micromobility-type transportation options in the Pacific Northwest.
MY CURRENT SERVICE ACTIVITIES
Currently, I serve a member on the TRB Roundabout Committee, the TRB Native American Transportation Issues Committee, the Fairbanks Area Surface Transportation Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and co-chair of the UAF Master Planning Committee.
