Jing is responsible for analyzing and updating ESI’s monthly Philadelphia Housing Index (PHI), which measures changes in the sales price of Philadelphia’s housing units through time, adjusting seasonality and housing traits to compare like-to-like, with differentiated trends by city district by using arms-length residential, single transaction sales from 2001.

Her thesis GIS project aimed at improving the traditional travel demand forecasting model by incorporating spatial regression. Her second year studio project was NY-NJ Crossrail Studio, whose focus was on applying lessons from London’s Crossrail project to New York’s fragmented and capacity-constrained regional rail network in order to maintain and expand current infrastructure, and bolster region-wide economic growth, where Jing worked on station area development plan design and economic impact analysis for major stations.
