Featured Scholar: Jeff Wilson, PhD
Associate Professor and Chair
Department of Geography, IU School of Liberal Arts
Jeff Wilson, Department of Geography in the IU School of Liberal Arts, focuses his translational work in environmental planning and management at both the state and local levels. The Greenways research project provides data regarding the use of public trails using infared monitors in the most comprehensive trail monitoring system in the United States. Using models to estimate traffic on proposed trails, practitioners can design cost effective trails and estimate safety improvements such as additional stop lights.
This research has also provided data indicating property values on or near trails actually increases contradicting a publicly held belief that trails are bad for local neighborhoods. This translational research effort has received national attention from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation which is interested in the correlation between obesity, public health and urban design.
The Greenway project is another example of how IUPUI's faculty are TRANSLATING their RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE.
