Congratulations to City and Regional Planning doctoral student Marcel Moran for earning the Berkeley-Austria Research Fellow for the summer to study micromobility (bikes + scooters) in Vienna. The grant comes from the Institute of European Studies and the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation.
The Institute for European Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation have signed an agreement to create an Austria-California-Program to promote scholarly collaboration between faculty and graduate students at the University of California, Berkeley, and Austrian universities with the goal of advancing research on both sides of the Atlantic on comparative U.S.-EU economic issues.
Moran’s research interests include mobility, the interaction between cities and new technologies such as self-driving cars, ride-hailing, and bikeshare, among others.
“I am deeply interested in the equity of mobility provision and access across cities and regions,” says Moran.
Moran earned his A.B. Biology at Harvard University and M.A. Social Sciences at University of Chicago.
