Research and teaching

Research activities

One of Dr. Sadeghpour's research projects is “Cycling Infrastructure for Cities in Cold Climates.” Cycling is currently receiving a large amount of attention in North America as a means of improving sustainability and reducing GHG emissions in urban areas. The underlying question for this research is that the investment in cycling infrastructure in cold climates is still a matter of debate.

Dr. Sadeghpour is currently working to develop a model that can predict the return on investment in cycling facilities based on the usage of these facilities in such environments. The model can also be used to conduct cost benefit analyses for the construction of cycling infrastructure in different communities, and inform budget and investment decisions.
