Karen has over 15 years’ experience in transportation modelling, appraisal and multiple account evaluation. This experience includes ten years working in the UK before moving to Canada.
Karen’s core experience is in demand and ridership forecasting for roads and urban transit. Spending five years on the Edinburgh Tram project, Karen helped to develop a new multi-modal regional forecasting model to support the outline business case development and project evaluation. Karen has continued to develop these skills, including multiple account evaluation, on major transit projects such as Amman bus rapid transit system, Hamilton LRT, Hurontario LRT, Calgary North Central LRT and, most recently, Edmonton Centre Line LRT.
At Steer, Karen supports the operations of our Canadian business in addition to her technical responsibilities.
