BIO: Elizabeth Delmelle is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Earth Science at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte, and the Chair of the Transportation Geography Specialty Group of the AAG. Dr. Delmelle’s research interests lie within two general fields of application: urban and neighborhood dynamics and urban transportation. Her work on neighborhood dynamics has sought to understand how and why neighborhoods change according to their multidimensional quality of life or socioeconomic complexion. This research has employed a variety of statistical and computational techniques to understand space-time patterns of change. On the transportation side, Dr. Delmelle has worked in the area of bicycle and pedestrian safety, performing spatial analyses of bicycle crash locations and comparing neighborhood-level risk factors between bicyclists and pedestrians. Finally, she is interested in spatial accessibility and spatial equity as it relates to public transport.
