Welcome to my website. My name is Mashrur. I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. My research focuses on integrating behavioral insights into transportation policy planning to decarbonize the mobility system. I combine the fields of urban planning, behavioral science, and social psychology to enhance our knowledge of how individuals make travel choices, and to inform policy-making towards sustainable transportation.
