While a Professor with the Department of Urban Design and Planning I instructed students in urban design and research methods. My work focuses on urban form analysis, land monitoring, neighborhood and street design, active travel and health. The National Institutes of Health and the US and Washington State departments of Transportation support current research on the built and social environments at the UFL. The research examines environmental influences on physical activity, active travel, eating behaviors, and other health outcomes. Done in close collaboration with colleagues in public health and transportation planning, the research is now based on high-resolution geospatial data on the built environment and objective behavior data. I collaborate with many colleagues, students, and organizations nationally and internationally.
