Contemporary society benefits from the faster and cheaper movements of people and goods. This expanded mobility, however, comes with increasingly dire environmental, social, and economic costs. Ying Song’s research integrates theories in geography and behavior science with emerging geospatial technologies. Her research leverages new geospatial data and computational methods to gain novel insights into the diversity and dynamics of mobility behaviors via various travel modes and offer solutions to promote green and healthy mobility.
