Poster: Research on Cycling Inequality in African-American Communities in Columbus, Ohio
This poster will explain cycling inequality for African-Americans in Columbus and will include socio-demographic characteristics in the form of a cluster map of African-American residences. From the cluster map, I will analyze which areas segregate African-Americans from other races. To examine cycling inequality, the poster will contain information about the inequality of bike-riding comfort levels and connectivity in Columbus. The poster will contain facts from the literature review suggesting how to calculate cycling inequality using aspects of connectivity and comfort level. I will compare bike-riding comfort level and connectivity between the African-American community and other communities, which are often made up of middle-income households and other races.

Invited SpeakerI am now a Ph.D. student in City and Regional Planning at The Ohio State University. My research interests are transit equity and accessibility issue for ethnic minorities. I worked as a research associate for the Seoul Institute for two and half years, suggesting social policies on welfare, culture, education, industry, and urban management policies. I participated in the Hongneung bio-cluster master plan, Seoul’s industrial complex regeneration master plan, and an industrial development master plan for Da-nang in Vietnam, which became a benchmark for certain policies. I am currently developing a master plan to design a special district for independent artists and foreign designers. To elaborate this master plan, I have been analyzing the spatial and economic conditions with ArcGIS, GeoDa, SPSS, and R.
