Ms. Glaser holds Masters degrees in Public Health and City Planning from UC Berkeley and is a PhD researcher within AISSR. She specializes in analysing urban processes and design perspectives that prioritize people and their communities. As a PhD researcher at the Urban Cycling Institute, she is interested in using the bicycle and its diverse user group as a lens to examine the dynamic social, cultural and experiential systems involved in contemporary urban planning, policy, and transport practices. She is researching how these systems (can) be learned by new user groups, transferred or tested in new/different mobility environments, or can influence policy or the built form.  


Meredith contributes to the teaching activities in Planning and Transportation, especially during the summer with GSSS Summer Programmes. Since 2015, she co-directs the summer programme Planning the Cycling City with Assistant Professor Dr. Marco te Brommelströet. Previously, she contributed to the Bachelors and Masters programs in the Chair of Architecture and the Built Environment at Technical University Eindhoven.
