Dr. Caroline Rodier is an Associate Researcher, Mineta Transportation Institute, San Jose State University and Associate Director of the Urban Land Use and Transportation Center at the University of California, Davis. Her major areas of research include transportation and environmental planning and policy analysis. Caroline has extensive experience applying land use and transportation models to explore both their promise and limits to inform public investment, planning, and policy decisions. At the University of California, Davis, she managed the development activity-based microsimulation models for the State of California and the San Joaquin Valley. She currently applies these models to investigate demand management policy synergisms, performance measurement, and policy effects on inter-regional and commercial vehicle travel. Previously, as a Senior Research at the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, she designed and implemented research evaluation programs for transit and truck smart parking systems, shared-use low-speed modes, and automated speed enforcement systems. She currently serves at the Chair of the Transportation Research Board’s Emerging and Innovative Public Transport and Technologies Committee. Caroline holds a Ph.D. in Ecology and an M.S. in Community Development from the University of California, Davis and a B.A. in U.S. History from Barnard College, Columbia University.
