Risa Kobayashi (小林 里瑳) is a Research Associate in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Tokyo. Her research interests include behavior models based on a discrete choice model, specifically landowner and travel behavior. She received her Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at the University of Tokyo, Japan, in March 2022, titled "Recursive Behavior Analysis of Landholding Dynamics and Trip Chains." She was appointed to the current position in April 2022.
