This isn’t quite breaking news, but I haven’t posted about it here yet.

I’ll be joining the Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in January 2018! I’ll be teaching courses in transportation engineering. I’m really excited to be returning to California, and also to be returning to my engineering roots (while certainly not abandoning my ties to planning).

The reason I’m starting in the January rather than September is my husband and I are expecting our first child this summer, so the department is letting me push back my start date in order to create some maternity leave for myself.

So that’s two pieces of exciting news.
