ERG Colloquium: Laura Schewel: Transportation Behavioral Data and Climate Change

Colloquium | February 5 | 4-5:30 p.m. | 126 Barrows Hall

 Laura Schewel, StreetLight Data

 Energy and Resources Group

Transportation is now the largest single-sector source of greenhouse gases in California, the US, and soon the world. The overwhelming challenge of combating these emissions is made harder by the fact that we know very little about transportation behavior due to the extreme difficulty of data collection. In this presentation, Laura Schewel will explore how the seemingly mundane topic of transportation data collection techniques has evolved over the years, and how new approaches yield sometimes surprising new insights into transportation equity, the rise of driving-for-shopping, and the question of how urban density intersects with driving patterns.
