She works to improve the models that are used for transportation planning, policy, and operations. She joined the Berkeley faculty in 2008.
Thank you to Professor Post for a tremendous three years as GMS Co-Director! Alison has been instrumental in building so many aspects of our community, including the Designated Emphasis, research initiatives, faculty hiring, and increased visibility with the website, seminar and newsletters. Fortunately, she continues on the GMS Executive Committee and as a Core GMS Faculty member.
