Dimitra Pyrialakou

Assistant Professor - Wadsworth Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Her long-term career goal is to understand and influence changes in transportation supply and demand and ultimately improve equitable access to basic needs and opportunities for people and communities. To achieve this goal, Pyrialakou (1) integrates qualitative and quantitative research methods to study and influence both the supply and demand aspects of the transportation environment, with a focus on transport disadvantaged populations, and (2) provides future civil engineers with the knowledge, analytical tools, and mindset to address issues of infrastructure and transportation equity when they enter the workforce.
