Patrick Singleton is an Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His research spans the areas of travel behavior analysis, transportation planning, and travel demand modeling, with a special interest in walking and bicycling. Patrick's dissertation research explored a concept known as "the positive utility of travel" by studying the benefits of traveling, including the productive use of travel time and enjoyment of the travel experience itself. Other recent projects have included reviewing connections between transportation planning and public health, exploring the gender gap in bicycling, and modeling the demand for pedestrian travel.
