About

Greg Macfarlane is the son of a Classics professor and a Latin instructor, and is also married to the Latin teacher at Broughton High School. How he became an engineer is anyone's guess. Greg is an expert in "Big Data" analysis and spatial econometrics, and has been trying his hand recently at discrete event simulation of travel patterns and transport networks. He has been with Parsons Brinckerhoff since 2014 and is a contract consultant to Transport Foundry. He holds graduate degrees in Civil Engineering and Economics from Georgia Tech and is an alumnus of BYU. Interested in cycling, Asian studies and culture, and tennis.
