Story
Introduction

David King is an Assistant Professor of Urban Planning.  His research explores the impact of local transportation planning on the built environment, public finance, social equity and accessibility.  As part of this research he has written about the phenomenon of cruising for parking and used spatial regression techniques to analyze travel behavior.  He also studies how public policy influences the adoption of new technologies to address congestion, energy and environmental concerns.  These issues are the focus of Professor King’s teaching through his courses covering planning techniques and methods, transportation and land use planning and transport policy.
