The central theme of my research is that prejudices in professional practice have resulted in the development of less-than-optimal transportation networks. My research includes historical and contemporary analyses. I conduct historical studies of street and highway planning and the evolution of the transportation planning profession. I conduct contemporary analyses of public transit policy and planning, surface transportation finance, state and federal transportation policy, transportation policy innovation, and the connection between transportation and land use.
