The Traffic21 Smart Transportation Podcast features and shares information from thought leaders and highlights the smart transportation work happening at Carnegie Mellon University and in the community.
In this episode you’ll be hearing from Bonnie Fan, who is the 2018 – 2020 Traffic21 Women in Transportation Fellow. Bonnie’s interest in urban life, transit and technology began brewing during her time as an Economics major at the University of Chicago. Bonnie saw the developmental and infrastructure challenges in Southside Chicago, and with her growing interest in entrepreneurship, she wanted to create new socially conscious solutions for the city after graduating. Bonnie joined the Chicago Transit Authority as a Data Scientist on the Performance Management team, where she worked on service optimization and manpower management projects. Now a second-year at Heinz College in the Data Analytics track, she is creating a foundation about policy and data she can apply to new mobility technology solutions and make an in impact on transportation. Listen in as we talked about her experiences as a graduate student and on the Traffic21 student leadership team.
The Traffic21 Smart Transportation Podcast is hosted and produced by Mobility21 UTC Diversity Fellow Allanté Whitmore.
