Alex Karner, PhD
I’m an Assistant Professor in the School of City & Regional Planning at Georgia Tech. 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.
