Associate Adjunct Professor of Transport Engineering
Lake Sagaris is an internationally recognized expert on civil society, gender and cycle-inclusive urban planning, as they relate to urban-regional governance for transitions toward more sustainable, socially just cities. An award-winning writer, she began her working life in Chile in 1980, with the London Times, Toronto Globe and Mail and other media. She holds a Master’s of Science and a PhD in Urban Planning (University of Toronto). She uses participatory action research and community-government partnerships to mobilize “ecologies of modes and actors” to transition toward more sustainable transport. These experiences have led to awards, most recently a distinction as Remarkable Woman in Transport, and presentations in Latin America, Europe, Canada, Taiwan, the US, and India.
