Dr. Kelcie Ralph is an assistant professor at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers. Her research interests include travel behavior, particularly of young adults and women.

Her work has been funded by the Federal Highway Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the University of California Transportation Center (UCTC). She is a co-author of a report on the gender division of household-serving travel in non-traditional households and a report on the travel patterns of teens and young adults.
Dr. Ralph received her PhD from the Department of Urban Planning at UCLA in 2015. As a Marshall Scholar, she earned a MSc in City Design and Social Science from the London School of Economics (2010) and a Mphil in Environmental Policy at the University of Cambridge (2011).
