Dylan Johnstone is a graduate student in the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program at Portland State University. While working on his B.A. in Environmental Studies at Northeastern University, he rediscovered his love for active transportation while exploring Boston by bike.
In July 2011, he studied abroad in the Netherlands for the first time. He is excited to return back to southern Holland to reimmerse himself in networks of protected bike lanes and a robust transit system.
His primary interests include active transportation design and planning, transportation demand management (TDM), and equity planning. He comes to Portland State with a background in bike safety and environmental education programs. He currently works as a Graduate Research Assistant at the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) on projects focused on bike and pedestrian counts and TDM during disaster recovery. In his spare time, he enjoys reading in coffee shops, baking biscuits, and planning his next backpacking or bike touring trip.
