Prof Catherine Morency


Associate Professor, Department of Civil, Geological and Mining Engineering, Polytechnique Montreal, Canada.

Catherine Morency is a civil engineer and associate professor at Polytechnique Montreal. Since 2010, she is head of the Mobility research Chair on the implementation of sustainability in transportation. Her research focuses on the modelling of individual travel behaviours and includes all modes of transportation (car, transit, car sharing, bike sharing, ridesharing, walking and cycling).

Professor Morency spoke about how to make access to transport equitable and transportation sustainable. Women and men use transportation in different ways for work and non-work related travel. These behaviors are influenced by employment status, age, the number of children, automobile availability, and the proximity to public transit. She will reflect how these features and patterns can be analyzed through advanced modeling technologies.
