Bradley Lane joins SPAA Faculty

Monday, July 1, 2013

The School of Public Affairs and Administration welcomes Assistant Professor Bradley Lane for the Fall, 2013 semester.

Dr. Lane earned his B.A. in Political Science and Public Policy from Rice University (2003), a M.A. in Geography from Indiana University (2006) and his Ph.D. in Geography from Indiana University (2010).

Along with Rachel Krause, he also comes to KU from the University of Texas El Paso, where he taught Introduction to Research Methods, Urban and Regional Planning, Policy Analysis and Decision Making and Comprehensive Integration of Public Administration.

Dr. Lane’s research focuses on travel behavior, policy, and planning issues in urban transportation. One of his current research projects focuses on the effect of gasoline prices on public transportation in the US, and was the focus of his dissertation. He is also involved in a series of projects on the policies, perceptions, attitudes, and travel behavior effects on electric vehicle usage, including a survey of urban residents across the US and an informational intervention project. Additional research includes developing a cost-benefit framework that considers sustainability in transport, the effect of public transit on oil dependence, the relationship between transit planning and land-use, using time-geography to measure transit accessibility, and measuring spatial variability in factors that influence travel behavior.

Dr. Lane’s teaching experience includes courses on human impact on the environment, research methods, policy analysis, human and regional geography, urban planning, capstone and thesis writing, and sports in society. He has served as a reviewer for several major journals and publishers, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Transportation Research Board. He also serves on the Board of the Transport Geography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers. Prior to becoming a geographer and a professor, Bradley was a competitive golfer in college, and continues to play in amateur tournaments.

In Fall, 2013 Dr. Lane will teach PUAD 836: Introduction to Quantitative Methods (MPA core course).
