Rosalie Singerman Ray

Rosalie Singerman Ray is a recent PhD graduate from the Urban Planning program at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation and postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Connecticut in the Transportation Technology and Society research group. Rosalie’s dissertation analyzed bus lane network expansion in London and Paris to illustrate the institutional changes needed to shift toward just, sustainable transport, finding that empowered but not autonomous local governments played a central role in shaping roadspace allocation. While completing her dissertation, she was a visiting fellow at the Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics at SciencesPo in Spring 2019 through the Alliance Français program. Her past research has explored the effects of transit construction on local businesses and community displacement, documented how city transportation departments and transit agencies collaborate to prioritize buses, and assessed the prospect of fare-free transit in the United States.
