Regina R. Clewlow is a leading transportation researcher on shared mobility and autonomous vehicles. She designed the first U.S. study with representative data on the impacts of ride-hailing (e.g. Uber, Lyft) on vehicle ownership, transit use, and vehicle miles traveled: Disruptive Transportation. She received her Ph.D. from MIT in transportation systems, and has served as a research scientist at UC Berkeley, Stanford, and UC Davis. Dr. Clewlow also holds a B.S. in computer science and an M.E. in civil and environmental engineering from Cornell. She is the CEO & founder of a new stealth transportation startup.
As a transportation researcher, Dr. Clewlow's work focused on developing and harnessing new datasets to measure the adoption and impacts of shared-use mobility (ride-hailing) and automated/ autonomous vehicles on travel behavior, vehicle purchase, and energy use. She is passionate about developing innovative transportation technologies that provide net positive social and environmental benefits: reduced congestion, improved accessibility, and a lower carbon footprint.

She she served as the Director of Business Development and Strategy at RideScout, a transportation aggregation app that integrated multiple options for getting from point A to point B.
