Hi! Thanks for making it over to the page.
My name is Chris Harding and I’m currently working on my PhD at the University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute – UTTRI. My supervisor is Dr Eric Miller and my main areas of research are active transportation, or in less jargony terms walking and cycling, and public participation and its role in the planning process.
Working with Eric means exposure to lots of exciting projects, so in addition to my thesis work, I was able to contribute to the UofT Waterfront Toronto Travel Survey, as well as StudentMoveTO and TTS2.0. These and other side projects have allowed me to significantly enhance my understanding of travel survey methods.
Before moving to Toronto in 2013, I lived in Montreal, where I did my undergrad and master’s at Concordia (the latter under the supervision of Dr Zachary Patterson in his TRIP lab). Near the end of my master’s I also did a bit of work in Dr Kay W Axhausen’s lab at ETH-Zurich.
This page is a work in progress where I hope to write about my research as it evolves, posting links to my work.
As I’m a podcast addict, I might include some suggestions too, just for kicks.
Thanks for coming by and feel free to send me an email if you have any questions or comments!
