Geography Professor Receives MDOT Grants

December 18, 2020
Congratulations to Professor Ying Song, who recently received TWO grants from the Minnesota Department of Transportation in support of her research.
 
1.  Advancing Equity in Accessibility and Travel Experiences: The Role of Gender and Identity. The proposed project will examine whether the psychological, socially constructed gender may lead to distinct activity-travel patterns using survey data collected at individual levels. 
 

2.  Improving Transportation Equity for all by Centering the Needs of Marginalized and Underserved Communities. This research project seeks to illustrate the systemic barriers that marginalized individuals confront, especially those constructed by Minnesota government agencies, and elicit the coping and survival strategies the participants utilize to navigate these barriers.

Congratulations Ying!
