Data Perspectives Staff
Kate is the owner of Data Perspectives Consulting. She finished her Ph.D. at UC Santa Barbara in 2013 in the Department of Geography. Kate studied Transportation Planning, Models and Methods while obtaining her Masters and Doctorate degrees. Her focus was in destination choice modeling and the decision making process involved in these choices. Kate became an expert in attitudinal and latent variable models and incorporating psychological aspects of decision making into behavioral models. She also studied the build environment and the impact of design on attitudes and travel behavior. For a more detailed look at her dissertation, click the link below.
Following her dissertation, Kate continues to focus her work in travel behavior data analysis and collection, as well as travel demand and location modeling and decision making.
