Welcome to Professor Kelly J. Clifton

SCARP’s new J. Armand Bombardier Chair in Regional Transportation Planning

SCARP is delighted to announce that Dr. Kelly J. Clifton has been appointed as the new J. Armand Bombardier Chair in Regional Transportation Planning. It is expected that Professor Clifton will be joining the School this coming summer.

Dr. Clifton brings a wealth of leadership experience to the position, both in the transportation field and in senior administrative roles. Her work is internationally recognised to be at the cutting edge of developments in research and policy innovation in transportation. In a field where research can be quite niche, she notably works across boundaries between disciplines, methodological approaches, or the worlds of research and practice. She has made significant contributions to transportation planning especially with respect to improved understanding of travel behaviour and the practice of modeling, developing practice-ready tools to help communities (for example, to implement plans to build affordable housing and pedestrian-friendly developments). Her work is often motivated by a commitment to see developments in transportation contribute to more equitable and healthy outcomes.

In enthusiastically...
