Robert leads the Transportation Engineering and Air Quality practice at RSG. His team conducts traffic operations analysis for public and private clients, and also conducts corridor- and long-range transportation planning initiatives for MPOs and DOTs. He has developed a sub-specialty in transportation-air quality analysis, and is an early innovator in the application of EPA’s MOVES mobile emissions model.
Robert joined RSG in 1991, and has been involved in several of the firm’s technical practices since that time. He has over 10 years of experience in the development and application of travel demand models. In 2000, he led the development of the firm’s civil engineering design practice focusing on transportation improvements for operational efficiency and enhanced livability. His project experience includes planning and design of Complete Streets projects, optimizing traffic signal performance, and leading controversial transportation projects where consensus-building is critical to success. In 2011, he began focusing on transportation air quality and consults with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on techniques for improving the effectiveness of mobile emission tools. For FHWA, he is leading pilot projects with State Departments of Transportation to develop policies for reducing transportation-generated greenhouse gas emissions. He is also leading the development of TRAQS, the Transportation-Air Quality Software, for conducting integrated mobile emissions-air dispersion modeling (NCHRP 25-48).
Robert lives in Salt Lake City, where he actively participates in the dynamic art and outdoor culture of the area.
