Mobility Behaviors and Physical Environments

Main content start

Mobility describes the way a person interacts with their environment in terms of how they move through space over time. We study individual differences in people's mobility patterns (e.g., distance travelled, routines, time spent in different locations) using surveys, experience sampling, and GPS data. Our work in this area is focused on (a) characterizing mobility behaviors and the environments people spend time in, (b) identifying the demographic and psychological factors associated with different mobility patterns, and (c) understanding the short and long-term outcomes of engaging in certain mobility behaviors or spending time in certain environments for people’s physical and mental well-being.
