Eric Lind is Manager of Research and Analytics in the Strategic Initiatives group at Metro Transit, the primary public transportation provider in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. Eric leads a data science team which helps make data available to be the foundation of decision-making in the agency. Arriving in transportation sideways from work as a quantitative ecologist, he uses the statistical and analytical skills he developed as a PhD researcher exploring ecosystem dynamics, to aid Metro Transit in understanding the similarly complex systems of human interaction with a transportation network. He has worked most recently on understanding accessibility, transit travel behavior and operational performance, through a combination of automated data sources and rider surveys.
