Profile: Dr. Anne Goodchild

I was born in London, Ontario, Canada, and lived there until I was 16, when I moved to California. My favorite thing to eat is fresh, ripe berries.

When I was a little girl I was fascinated by big transportation problems. I remember travelling to Washington, D.C. with my parents and riding the subway for the first time. I loved reading the map, figuring out the schedule, and planning our routes. I also remember visiting a postal sorting station on a school field trip and being absolutely fascinated that they could process so much mail with such speed and accuracy, with handwritten addresses! I’ve still never had a piece of mail get lost.  

 

I love working with students. I feel very privileged to work with bright, motivated, and sincere people who are working to improve the world we live in. They keep me learning and give me hope for the future!
