Associate Professor, CEPT University
Rutul Joshi is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Planning, CEPT University. He leads the module on foundation courses for the PG programs in the Faculty of Planning and heads the doctoral programs as part of his university role.
Rutul’s doctoral research focused on conceptualising the poverty-mobility linkages for Indian cities. Since then, he has continued to work on issues related to transport equity, sustainable mobility, and land-use transport integration with a larger agenda of reforming urban planning practices. Rutul has led multi-year research projects on contextualizing transit-oriented development for Indian cities. The key project outcome was the TOD planning handbook, which was used for the capacity building of several government planners and officials. Currently, Rutul is researching the issues related to reforming parking policies in Indian cities, TOD principles to retrofit areas around transit in low-income countries and urban mobility challenges in the post-Covid world. Rutul also writes occasionally in the newspapers and media on civic and urban development issues.
