CRP Hires Transportation Planner Nicholas Klein

July 17, 2017

Nicholas J. Klein '01 was hired as an assistant professor on a tenure track in CRP, effective July 1. Klein has previously taught at Columbia University, Temple University, and Pratt Institute.

Klein's research contributes to two central areas of transportation planning: understanding the factors that influence how people travel on a daily basis and how these changes play out over the course of their lives. His work focuses on marginalized populations and neighborhoods that use transit, walk, and bike at high rates. By studying factors that influence how people in these communities travel on a daily basis and how their travel evolves over many years, Klein's work offers perspectives for planners, policymakers, and researchers on issues of equity and sustainability in transportation.

In addition to a bachelor's degree in operations research and industrial engineering from Cornell, Klein received his Ph.D. from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, and a master's degree in urban spatial analytics from the University of Pennsylvania.
