My name is Di Kang. I'm from China. I go to the University of Virginia where I am a Bachelors in Transportation Planning and Intelligent Transportation Systems candidate.

What got you interested in sustainability?

I think "smart city" is a new and creative concept that all planners are interested in. Sustainability is a very important part of this giant aim.

What sustainability, energy, and mobility issues are important to you?

Since I am now working on research about the impacts of autonomous vehicles, I am pretty curious about electronic vehicles and driverless vehicles.

What exciting projects/research are you working on now?

Just like I mentioned in question two, my research topic is about the impact of autonomous vehicles on Virginia's planning process.

What are your plans for the next five years?

Pursing a PhD, hopefully. Gold bless.

What made you want to apply to SISE?

Location, professors, entrepreneurs, top students and famous lecturers. 

What are you most looking forward to doing in the city?

I hope to visit several most famous scenic spots and try yummy food.

Do you like cats? If not, are you willing to learn to like cats?

Actually I am not a cat person. But I would like to learn to like them.
