Research Walking Study

Walking, unmistakably, is one of the most common things we do as humans, but as researchers will tell you, where we walk, how we walk, how often we walk and how fast we walk are all influenced by a myriad of factors, including the physical environment. Yunwoo Nam, Associate Professor of Community and Regional Planning and lead PI Changbum Ahn, Assistant Professor of Construction Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, were recently awarded a National Science Foundation grant for a project entitled “Human-Centric Sensing Platform to Assess Neighborhood Physical Disorder.”
