Urbanism

I am passionate about making cities accessible and pleasant experiences for all. I believe that a well-integrated, safe, and convenient multi-modal transport system is a key ingredient of a successful and liveable city.

I try to contribute to these values as a member of the Edmonton Transit System Advisory Board. I also like to talk about cycling and bike share as crucial components of a healthy and welcoming urban environment.

General Transit & Urbanism

  • On the ETS Advisory Board, I contribute research, help write reports and letters, and am currently chairing the First & Last Kilometre Subcommittee.
  • I am a former volunteer-and-social-media-associate-turned-board-member of Paths for People, a not-for-profit that advocates for a more walkable and bikeable city, where I helped with outreach, board work, and putting on events.
  • Two examples: I worked Paths for People's booth at Cycle in the City, and was a table facilitator at A City for Life 2018, an event with 30+ invited attendees from City Council, City Administration, and advocacy. PS: I met Janette Sadik-Khan there.
  • I hold a Certificate in Management of Urban Infrastructures from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne via Coursera.

Bike Share

I believe that a bike share system can help more citizens and visitors access the joy, health benefits, and versatility of urban cycling without having to own a bike, or worrying where to lock it up safely. I believe that bike sharing should be considered an integral piece of a transit ecosystem. So I read reports and research from other places that have tried bike sharing, and I go and talk about it.
