Kari Edison Watkins, PE, PhD, is an assistant professor in civil and environmental engineering at Georgia Tech. After trying out the Northeast as a consultant for a decade and the Pacific Northwest to earn a PhD at the University of Washington (UW), she decided it was time to return to her undergraduate alma mater and the City of Atlanta to help it become a more transit-friendly, bikeable place. In her research and teaching, Kari uses technology to improve, understand, and influence travel mode choice and multi-modal transportation planning. At UW, she co-created the OneBusAway program to provide real-time transit information tools and assess their impacts on riders in greater Seattle-Tacoma. She continues to work on ways to improve traveler information, but has also begun to examine opportunities to crowdsource cycling infrastructure and amenity data through the Cycle Atlanta program.
