Chris Cherry, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, was interviewed about electric bicycles by the New York Times. Cherry has become a well-known expert on electric bikes after studying them and their popularity in China and launching the U.S.’s first fully-automated electric bike sharing station on UT’s campus for a research project. Cherry told the Times that e-bikes represent the largest-ever adoption of alternative-fuel vehicles—far more prevalent than electric cars or Segways, though they get less attention.
