His current research interests include sustainable public and active transport with an eye toward improving environmental performance and quality of life. Jamie’s loved riding public transit since he first set foot on Washington DC’s Red Line in elementary school. Since then, buses and trains from Montgomery County, Maryland, to Madrid to Montreal, have been his preferred wheels. Jamie is an attorney and previously served as a climate law fellow at Georgetown Law’s Public Policy Clinic working to help cities and states navigate the legal complexities of adapting to climate change. Before Georgetown, Jamie worked was an associate attorney at Langrock Sperry & Wool, LLP, in Burlington, Vt., where he focused on land-use and municipal law, among other topics. Jamie also served as law clerk to the Hon.
