Xavier J. Harmony
Transportation Policy, Planning, and Research
Welcome to my website!
I am a policy analyst, transit planner, and researcher currently working full-time in industry while completing my PhD at Virginia Tech.
My current research focus is my PhD project: "Essays in Transportation and Electoral Politics." This research looks at how electoral politics influences decision-making in transportation, especially focusing on agenda setting, transportation policy, and public transportation service planning. More broadly, my ongoing research touches on transportation politics, transit planning, equity, and performance management.
I am always open to research collaborations and other professional opportunities. This website gives an overview of my professional experience, education, and research if you want to learn more about how we could work together.
