Bonjour / Hi!

My name is Chris Harding and I’ve recently begun a research internship at Polytechnique in Montreal, working on travel survey methods under the supervision of Catherine Morency. At the same time, I am finishing my PhD at the University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute – UTTRI. My supervisor at UofT is Dr Eric Miller and my main areas of research are survey methods, active transportation (walking and cycling), and public participation and its role in the planning process.

Working with Eric meant exposure to lots of exciting projects, so in addition to my thesis work, I was able to contribute to the Waterfront Toronto Travel Survey, as well as StudentMoveTOTTS2.0 and City Logger. These and other side projects have allowed me to significantly enhance my understanding of travel survey methods, whether web surveys, face-to-face methods, smartphone apps or broader design considerations.

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. The master’s work focused on analysis of activity spaces and relating their attributes to land use and sustainability.

This website is a work in progress where I will post links to presentations, reports and articles as they become available.

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!


Bienvenu à ma page de recherche!

Je travaille présentement sur les méthodes de collecte de données sur la mobilité des individus, sous la supervision de Prof Morency à Polytechnique Montréal. Je termine en même temps mon doctorat à UofT, sous la supervision de Eric Miller.

Mes intérêts principaux de recherche sont la collecte de données sur les déplacements, la mobilité douce (marche et vélo), ainsi que le rôle des citoyens dans le processus de planification.

Avant de déménager à Toronto en 2013, je vivais à Montréal, où j’ai fait mon bac et ma maîtrise à Concordia (le second sous la supervision de Zachary Patterson dans son laboratoire TRIP). J’ai aussi travaillé quelques temps au laboratoire du Dr Kay Axhausen à ETH Zurich.
Ma recherche de 2011 à 2013 était axée sur la meilleure compréhension des aires d’activités créées par les déplacements d’individus.

Sur ce site, je place des liens vers les présentations que je donne, ainsi que les rapports et articles pour lesquels je contribue.

N’hésitez pas à m’envoyer un courriel si vous avez des questions ou commentaires!
