verfied profile

My research is in large-scale transportation system optimization, modeling and assessment. I work on optimizing transportation system operations, including vehicle routing, developing various traffic signal control algorithms, developing freeway control strategies (speed harmonization & ramp metering), & optimizing vehicle motion (lateral & longitudinal) to reduce their energy consumption. In the area of large-scale transportation system modeling, we have expanded the domain of knowledge and developed a suite of transportation modeling tools, including the INTEGRATION microscopic traffic simulation software. In the area of transportation system assessment, we have developed the theory and models needed to quantify the efficiency, safety, energy, & environmental impacts of these systems.
