Jonathan’s research focuses on the ways information technologies influence travel with potential to foster more sustainable, active, and just mobilities. For his dissertation, Jonathan explored how the adoption of evolving forms of remote working such as nomadic work affect transportation system usage in the multimodal urban context of the New York metropolitan area. As an avid pedestrian, he also has a growing research interest in urban traffic safety.
