About

Amber Woodburn, Ph.D., joined OSU in Fall 2016 as an Assistant Professor in the City and Regional Planning section of the Knowlton School and holds a joint appointment with the Center for Aviation Studies.

Her education background includes a BS (UC Berkeley, 2009) and MS (UT Knoxville, 2013) in Civil Engineering and a PhD (University of Pennsylvania, 2016) in City and Regional Planning, all with an emphasis on transportation systems. Notably, Dr. Woodburn received a $100,000 Eisenhower fellowship from the US Department of Transportation, a $10,000 research award from the Airport Cooperative Research Program, and was selected as an Eno Transportation fellow while completing her graduate studies.

Dr. Woodburn’s broad research activity includes spatial-statistical analysis of transportation systems as well as qualitative analysis of NEPA planning documents that disclose the environmental impacts of transportation projects. Specifically, Amber is interested in investigating social equity concerns for airport-adjacent communities and project evaluation methods for global aviation infrastructure planning.
