Travel demand modeling
 
Josh is a PhD student in the department of Civil and Materials Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). His primary research interest is in the field of travel demand modeling, specifically focusing on activity-based modeling approaches. He received his B.S. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2002 and his M.S. from UIC in 2007.

His current research focuses on activity-based modeling using a behavioral process-based approach. This involves collecting and analyzing activity-scheduling and travel information to understand the underlying decision processes and integrating these processes into the full travel demand model. His advisors are Dr. Abolfazl (Kouros) Mohammadian (Civil and Materials Engineering) and Dr. Peter Nelson (Computer Science).
