  • Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Metropolitan Growth and Change, University of Calgary

Kwangyul Choi received his Ph.D. in Community and Regional Planning from the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation research addresses how land use policies can reduce household automobile use and consequently alleviate the negative impact on our environment. As a postdoctoral research fellow in the Richard Parker Professorship, the joint position of the Haskayne School of Business (HSB) and the Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS) at the University of Calgary, Choi works collaboratively with the Westman Centre for Real Estate Studies on the area of Metropolitan Growth and Change. As a Kinder scholar, Choi will examine the level of accessibility to transportation and job resources specific to tenants residing in rental assistance program units in Houston, Texas. Collaborating with Kinder researchers, he plans to evaluate whether the local transit authority reduces mobility barriers to enable these renters to access employment hubs where low-income jobs are clustered.
