On study leave September 2021 through August 2022

Dr. Bigazzi is an associate professor at UBC with a joint appointment in the Department of Civil Engineering and the School of Community and Regional Planning. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Portland State University in 2014, investigating urban bicyclists’ uptake of traffic-related air pollution. His primary research areas are the dynamics of travel by foot, bicycle, and emerging human-electric hybrid vehicles such as e-bikes, and traffic-related emissions and air quality.
