About

I’m Jonathan Stiles, currently a PhD Candidate in Planning and Public Policy at the Rutgers University Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. I teach as a part-time lecturer at Rutgers University and as an adjunct instructor at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). My research is on the effects of information technologies on travel through changes to work location, such as telecommuting and mobile work. My dissertation research is exploring how the adoption of evolving forms of remote-working such as nomadic work impact transportation system usage in a multimodal urban context. I have a professional background in Internet software development, having worked at Razorfish, Sony, Quigo Technologies and AOL. I also hold a masters degree in International Affairs from The New School, and was Director of Technology for the international education nonprofit Pencils of Promise.
