More recently, Dr. Joh has conducted a literature review of transportation surveys focusing on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on travel behavior and was featured in the webinar, “What’s “normal” anyway?”.  He has provided technical oversight and expertise on numerous other transportation surveys.
