Professor Christopher Zegras
Undertaken with support from a MIT Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) Fund grant, this research explores the influence of gated communities on household travel behavior in Santiago de Chile. The work includes design and implementation of a small-scale household travel and residential preferences survey in the comuna of Puente Alto. Data analysis and behavioral modeling are ongoing.
