Alex Karner, PhD

I’m an assistant professor in the Graduate Program in Community and Regional Planning at The University of Texas at Austin. My work critically engages with the practice of transportation planning with the goal of achieving progress towards equity and sustainability. To this end I develop innovative methods for analyzing the performance of integrated transportation-land use systems in the areas of civil rights, environmental justice, public health, and climate change. This work is undergirded by my training in civil engineering, transportation planning, and history.
