Linder´s commitment to the environment is the thread that unifies her studies while working toward her Doctorate of Urban Planning in the School of Planning, Policy, and Development at USC. Most interested in the nexus of transportation, land use and environmental quality, she approaches transportation “as a public good."
After Linder´s bachelor´s and master´s programs at the University of Pennsylvania, she worked as Program Assistant for the Pennsylvania Environmental Council in Philadelphia, where she helped establish the Environmental Advisory Council Network. In that position, she received a good acquaintance with environmental outreach and policy by developing workshops and training for members, designing an environmental networking website, and even delivering public presentations on environmental issues for municipalities.
As a METRANS Graduate Research Assistant, she collaborated on a major field research project regarding the 2002 work shutdown in the local ports.
Linder recently worked with the Sea Grant Center at USC, incorporating principles of smart growth into watershed education materials. Currently with USC´s Center for Sustainable Cities, she has helped manage a team of research assistants to conduct an inventory of Los Angeles recreation facilities. This material will be the subject of a report at the forthcoming meeting of the American Association of Geographers.
