Research Interests

Dr. Misra's research interests include bicycle and pedestrian safety, citizen science, smart and connected cities, and data-driven learning. She is also deeply motivated by fundamental research in travel-behavior-model development and methodological improvements. Her doctoral research focused mainly on nonmotorized transportation and travel-behavior modelling using crowdsourced, innovative data-collection methods. Through her research, she gained extensive experience in nonstandardized data handling and management, GIS and transportation-data analytics, and discrete choice modelling. She has also worked on projects related to toll-lane usage and equity aspects of smartphone-based information sharing.
