Dr. David Boyce, P.E., is Professor Emeritus of Transportation and Regional Science in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Adjunct Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois.
During 40 years of academic research and teaching, Professor Boyce addressed key methodological issues related to metropolitan transportation and land use planning. His early monograph, Metropolitan Plan Making, critically examined the experience with the land use and travel forecasting models during the 1960s. Recognizing that these methods lacked an adequate scientific basis, he has since devoted himself to the formulation and solution of urban travel and location forecasting models as constrained optimization problems and related constructs, which synthesize elements of network analysis and modeling, discrete choice theory and entropy-based methods.
During his career, David Boyce served as a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania (1966-77), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1977-88), and the University of Illinois at Chicago (1988-2003). He received his B.S. in civil engineering from Northwestern University in 1961, and his Ph.D. in regional science from the University of Pennsylvania in 1965. He also received his Master of City Planning degree from Penn. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of Ohio, a Life Member of ASCE and an Emeritus Member of the Transportation Network Modeling Committee of the Transportation Research Board.
