I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Michigan, School for Environment & Sustainability and Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. I am also a Research Fellow at Lyft, working cross-functionally on strategic electrification efforts and Lyft’s commitment to 100% EV by 2030.
My interests include the system-level analysis of electric vehicles, shared mobility, and automation by understanding how they impact travel pattern, energy use, and economics of mobility. My research broadly focuses on leveraging emerging mobility modes to improve transportation system efficiency, sustainability and social equity. I heavily rely on data science techniques, economics, and optimization to investigate the mechanisms that promote sustainable transportation.
