Research Interests:
  • Big data analytics for transportation: travel demand analysis, transportation safety data analysis, discrete choice modeling;
  • Connected and autonomous vehicles: technologies, and impacts;
  • Multimodal transportation and shared mobility: non-motorized transportation (bicycle and public transit) systems planning and operations, carsharing, and bike-sharing;
  • Traffic system operation and control: traffic simulation, and active traffic management (variable speed limits and managed lanes); and
  • Transportation system analysis and network modeling: equilibrium-based traffic assignment, network design and highway improvements, travel time reliability, freeway bottleneck identification and mitigation, and congestion pricing.
  • Operations research: Nonlinear programming, integer programming, metaheuristics, network optimization.
