About Kyle Sorlie Titlow
Hola! I'm a master's student here in SGD. I am originally from Poquoson, Virginia and completed my undergraduate degree in political science and Hispanic Studies at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia (Go Tribe!). I have also spent some time studying and travelling in Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, and Ecuador.
When I'm not spending endless hours annoying fellow students at my desk on the 5th floor, I enjoy running, swimming, biking, travelling, reading, hiking, playing soccer, doing art, watching the Philadelphia Phillies/William & Mary Tribe lose, wasting time on Wikipedia, and exploring Tucson's magnificent public transportation system.
My current research looks at transit accessibility levels in low-income housing zones in Buenos Aires, Argentina and ties into my larger interests in transportation geography, urban planning and history, social equity, and public transit in the Global South.
Areas of Study
I plan to focus my work on Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and North America.
My research interests are primarily in transportation-economic geography, including networks (e.g. airlines, railroads, buses, highways, streetcars, subways), airports, public transit, transport history, transit-oriented development, multi-modal transportation, comparative transportation policy, transport-related development, and human-transport interactions, political geography (e.g. elections), and sports geography (e.g. stadium-related planning, Olympic and World Cup geographies, sporting politics).
In the future, I'd love to expand my research to explore human-climate change relations, science and weather communication, GIS, participatory mapping, subversive geographies, Latin American studies, African studies, comparative politics, and American political geographies.
