PATRICIA LYON MOKHTARIAN Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Chair, Interdisciplinary MS/PhD Program in Transportation Technology and Policy and Associate Director for Education, Institute of Transportation Studies University of California, Davis.
Patricia Mokhtarian joined UC Davis in 1990, after nine years in regional planning and consulting in Southern California. Prof. Mokhtarian has specialized in the study of travel behavior for more than 30 years. A key research interest has been the impact of telecommunications technology on travel behavior, with additional interests in attitudes toward mobility, adoption of new technologies and services, impacts of land use (especially residential location) on travel behavior, and the transportation/air quality impacts of transportation demand management measures. She has authored or co-authored more than 200 refereed journal articles, technical reports, and other publications, and given invited talks around the country and the world. She is an area editor of Transportation, and on the editorial boards of Transportation Research A, Transport Policy, and the Journal of Transportation Letters. Prof. Mokhtarian is an emeritus member of the Transportation Research Board Committees on Telecommunications and Travel Behavior (founding chair), and Traveler Behavior and Values. Her PhD is in Operations Research, from Northwestern University.
Saving travel has always been a motivation for the creation and use of information and communication technologies. So with the ongoing spread of ever-improving technologies, why do travel and congestion continue to increase? Twelve reasons for this paradoxical result are presented, as well as four reasons why some substitution can be expected.
