CTS is pleased to present a seminar entitled "Recent Innovations in Travel Modeling" by Dr. Abolfazl Mohammadian, Associate Professor, Department of Civil and Materials Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago, at 4:00 p.m. in Room 1000 SEO.
This presentation will examine innovative and promising advances in travel modeling, with an emphasis on moving state-of-the-art research into practice. It will focus on recent advances in travel modeling, opportunities and challenges related to implementation, and directions for further research and development. New areas for research will be briefly outlined, including developing an integrated system of models to build on new knowledge about human decision-making, activity-based models of travel demand, policy and pricing analysis, and implications for emission and air quality modeling. It will also emphasize on the importance of the role of survey methodology and applications of mathematical models in the study of travel behavior. Two case studies will be including an activity-based model recently developed for Jakarta, Indonesia and a more advanced model currently being developed in Chicago.
Dr. Mohammadian is an Associate Professor of Transportation Systems in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering at UIC. His research has covered various areas of transportation planning including travel behavior analysis, modeling of activity and travel patterns, travel survey, and development of state-of-the-art travel demand models for implementation in practice. He is the co-editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Transportation Letters and has served as guest editor of the Journal of Transportation. He has served in several committees of the US National Academy of Science-Transportation Research Board (TRB) including Transportation Demand Forecasting, Traveler Behavior and Values, Telecommunications and Travel Behavior, Travel Survey Methods, Statistical Methodology in Transportation Research, and the Taskforce on Moving activity-based approach to practice. He has received the 2008 Fred Burggraf and 2007 Charley Wootan awards from the Transportation Research Board recognizing his contributions to transportation research.
