"An Overview of Computational Transportation Science Research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory"

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is the Department of Energy’s largest science and energy laboratory. As an international leader in a range of scientific areas that support the Department of Energy’s mission, ORNL has six major mission roles: neutron science, energy, high-performance computing, systems biology, materials science at the nanoscale, and national security. With the largest programs in high-performance computing and transportation research amongst the DOE national laboratories, ORNL is bringing together a wide range of diverse expertise ranging from engineering and transportation science and computing and computational sciences to advance the newly emerging field of computational transportation science. This presentation will provide an overview of the various research and development activities contributing to computational transportation science as the laboratory address the global challenges of climate and energy. In addition, possible opportunities for collaboration and partnerships for faculty and students will also be discussed.

Dr. Budhendra Bhaduri is the leader of the Geographic Information Science & Technology (GIST) Group at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and a founding member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Geospatial Sciences Steering Committee. He is internationally recognized for his leadership role in conceiving, designing, and implementing innovative geocomputational methods and algorithms to solve a wide variety of national and global problems involving population dynamics modeling, natural resource studies, transportation modeling, critical infrastructure protection, and disaster management. He is a principal member of the LandScan global population modeling programs at ORNL, which, in 2006 won a prestigious R&D 100 award as one of the top 100 global technologies serving society. In addition to his contributions in human settlement studies, he has extensive experience of novel implementation of geospatial science and technology in other areas sustainable development research, including human dimensions of critical infrastructure, urbanization and watershed impacts, and energy resource assessment. Dr. Bhaduri is actively involved with academic institutions for scientific collaborations and student engagement for research in geospatial science. He is a recipient of the Department of Energy’s Outstanding Mentor Award for his dedicated service to the department for developing future workforce for the nation.
