METRANS Online Webinar: Understanding Mobility Changes in Response to COVID-19: A Los Angeles Case Study,Thursday, March 25, Noon (Pacific Time)

The webinar is organised by our partner METRANS Transportation Center at the University of Southern California and is a part of the Spring 2021 Speaker Series.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people’s lives throughout the world. In the US, pandemic response has been largely left to state and local governments, resulting in a patchwork of policies.

This research examines compliance with COVID-19 related policies in Los Angeles County across income and race/ethnic groups by using mobile device data to compare mobility patterns before and during the various policy phases of the pandemic. The results show how race and socioeconomic disparities are revealed in mobility patterns.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Genevieve Giuliano, Professor in the Sol Price School of Public Policy, University of Southern California, and Director of the METRANS joint USC and California State University Long Beach Transportation Center
  • Yougeng Lu, Ph.D. candidate in Urban Planning and Development at Sol Price School of Public Policy, USC.
