Profile: Dr. Johnathon Ehsani


Dr. Ehsani’s research examines the relationship between transportation and health. Using experimental, observational and population-based methods, his research is focused on identifying policies that advance the safety and equity of the transportation system, including the impact of autonomous vehicles on cities.

He believes autonomous vehicles could provide significant social benefit if strategically deployed, by addressing issues such as food deserts, providing access to healthcare, and serving neighborhoods that have been underserved by the existing transportation system.
