Edward H. and Joyce Linde Assistant Professor

Jinhua Zhao is the Edward H. and Joyce Linde Career Development Assistant Professor of Urban Planning at DUSP. He holds Master of Science, Master of City Planning and Ph.D. degrees from MIT and a Bachelor's degree from Tongji University. He studies travel behavior and transportation policy, public transit management, and China’s urbanization and mobility. He sees transportation as a language: to describe people, to characterize cites, and to understand institutions. His current project examines the interaction between policy making by the governments and behavioral response from the public in the context of China’s urban development. He very much enjoys working with students. He is opening a new course at DUSP entitled "Urbanizing China: A Reflective Dialogue."
