Kristina Currans is an Assistant Professor in the College of Architecture, Planning & Landscape Architecture at the University of Arizona in Tucson. She studies the intersection between transportation and land use development. Although trained as a civil engineer, Dr. Currans' work bridges the transportation planning and engineering disciplines. Her current research and teaching emphasizes the rethinking and redeveloping new data and methods for applications in practice to help communities plan for the places they want. Recent and ongoing research includes: (1) Operationalizing the link between off-site parking supply and vehicle demand impacts for practice; (2) Shared electric scooter programs and how they can be integrated into traveler's behavior choices; (3) How the availability of transportation infrastructure impacts transportation choices (e.g., drive, walk, bike); and (4) The impact of transit investment on real estate values across multiple regions and transit systems.
