Over the course of the nearly six years he’s served on the campus, the focus of his unit is to assertively promote alternative transportation in the face of COVID, strengthening and advocating for the student transit pass program, and leveraging mobility justice lenses in the TDM Strategic Plan to promote mobility justice and access for the Berkeley Community. He works with the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT), the International Parking and Mobility Institute (IPMI) and Seamless Bay Area in incorporating not only Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion into transit planning but also to further enhance mobility justice regionally and nationwide.
