Regina is the CEO and Founder of Populus.ai, a data platform for private mobility operators and cities to deliver safer, more efficient streets. Regina has over a decade of experience in transportation, where she is a leading expert on innovations in public transit, shared mobility, and autonomous vehicles. She formed Populus after serving in executive roles at a Ford Smart Mobility investment and moovel North America (previously RideScout and GlobeSherpa). Regina was the Director of Business Development & Strategy for moovel North America, the market leader in mobile payment services for public transit agencies.
Prior to her roles in industry, Regina received her Ph.D. in transportation and energy systems from MIT. As a research scientist at Stanford and UC Berkeley, she developed and led research on the travel behavior impacts of shared mobility services (e.g. Uber, microtransit) and autonomous vehicles. Regina was the lead author of the recent groundbreaking study Disruptive Transportation: The Adoption, Utilization, and Impacts of Ride-Hailing in the United States. She has received several awards and distinctions, including: National Engineers Week "New Face of Engineering", EPA STARS Fellow, MIT Energy Fellow, and Department of Transportation Eisenhower Fellow.
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.
