Basar Ozbilen,PhD
Postdoctoral Researcher

3 Revolutions Future Mobility Program
Institute of Transportation Studies
University of California, Davis

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the 3 Revolutions Future Mobility (3RFM) program of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Davis. My research centers around travel behavior, sustainable development, emerging mobility, transportation equity, and public health. I continuously collaborate with scholars from various fields, such as Civil Engineering, Social Work, Geography, Construction Management, Environmental Science, and Psychology, on the associations between the built environment, transportation equity, the adoption of emerging mobility technologies, and physical/mental health.
