Jacob’s passions for big cities, systems technology, and sustainable mobility align with the work he is involved with as a Transportation EIT. Jacob brings his combination of systems design experience, policy background, and data analytics perspective to help integrate many of IBI Group’s existing practices with the tech-based solutions they are pushing forward.
Working with IBI’s Mobility+ teams, Jacob has applied these skills on various transportation projects, ranging from curbside management to transportation demand analytics. His background in policy has enabled Jacob to work with cities to identify their pain points and bottlenecks when dealing with urban transportation. He has also been heavily involved with creating innovative solutions to these issues, with a specific focus on the data and systems integration involved. With his Master’s in Cities Engineering and Management from University of Toronto and Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Mathematics from Queen’s University, Jacob is constantly looking to better address the complex issues urban centres are facing today.
