Teddy Forscher is currently a fourth year PhD student in the Transportation Engineering program at the University of California, Berkeley Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS). His work broadly focuses on the impacts that changes in personal consumption patterns—particularly towards more e-commerce transactions—have on transportation networks. As part of a research agenda that aims to enhance municipal and regional adaptability in the presence of new mobility services, he is developing demand models that capture preferences for a wide variety of online goods (e.g., parcels, groceries, hot food, etc.). Additionally, he aims to pair this work with insights gathered regarding the volume and composition of changing last-mile delivery fleets to produce one of the first comprehensive views of the near-term future of consumption and transportation. Prior to his doctoral studies, Teddy received a dual Master’s degree in Transportation Engineering and City + Regional Planning, also from U.C. Berkeley.
