Chester studies urban livability and active transportation as a Master's student in Natural Resources, a Graduate Research Assistant at the Transportation Research Center, and a Graduate Student Fellow at the Gund Institute. He specializes in geographic information systems, urban environmental planning, spatial cognition, and interdisciplinary social science and humanities research using spatial methods. He holds a BA in Geography from Middlebury College and has worked as a GIS instructor, freelance cartographer, and consultant in the renewable energy industry. Outside the office, Chester bikes, sails, cross country skis, grows tomatoes, and generally enjoys being outside. His long-term professional goal is to help merge the energy efficiency of urban land use with the ecosystem services and amenities of rural places so he can live car-free and still get his dose of the outdoors on a regular basis.
