Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Graduate Fellow

Greg Griffin studies how planners and publics work together with technology, particularly through engaged scholarship in sustainable transportation and geographies of health. He completed his dissertation, called "Sociotechnical Co-production of Planning Information: Opportunities and Limits of Crowdsourcing for the Geography and Planning of Bicycle Transportation" in May, 2019, and started as an Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at The University of Texas at San Antonio in fall 2019.

Previously, Greg worked as a researcher with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, state park planner and regional transportation planner, and taught Transportation Systems at Texas State University. Greg is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners, and bicycles whenever possible.
