My main research activities are mostly in the field of traffic flow theory and transport network modelling. I am a member of the Committee on Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics and Committee on Network Modelling of the Transportation Research Board of the U.S. National Academies. During the past several years, I have extensively worked on understanding dynamics and modelling of large-scale transport networks in the contexts of Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD) or Network Fundamental Diagram (NFD), Simulation-based Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA), and pedestrian networks. Following is a list of some of the ongoing research projects in my group:

  • Modelling traffic congestion propagation and dissipation as a spreading phenomenon
  • Pedestrian traffic assignment problem (pTAP)
  • Routing and pricing control in mixed autonomy congested networks
  • Modelling shared service transport systems (ridesourcing, ridesharing, MaaS, etc.)
  • Autonomous eco-driving

 


 

During the past ten years, I have engaged with a number of industry and government organisations including

  • Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
  • Cisco
  • iMOVE CRC
  • Cardno
  • KPMG
  • Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV)
  • Transport for NSW
  • Victoria Department of Transport (VicRoads)

CVEN9422 Traffic Management and Control

Traffic engineering professionals are tasked with the responsibility of ensuring the safe and efficient movement of people and goods through the provision and maintenance of transportation systems. The effectiveness of the transport system defines the economic development and quality of life for the entire community.  This course offers students an advanced understanding of the field of traffic management and control, with a focus on traffic flow theory and characteristics of both motorised and non-motorised traffic. The course covers topics including fundamentals of traffic flow theory and analysis, queuing theory, shockwave theory and analysis, microscopic simulation, design and operations of unsignalised and signalised intersections, and network traffic flow.

CVEN4402 Transport Systems - Part 1: Network Analysis

This subject covers strategic planning aspects related to transport systems, including transport network-based analysis, modelling and optimisation techniques. Network representation of transport systems and traffic route choice modelling including user equilibrium and system optimal are the two main broad topics that will be discussed in this subject. Knowledge about different types of transport network solutions and when and where to apply them are important for transport professionals. The subject material focuses on network theory in some depth, and a reasonable mathematical competency, as well as the ability to perform computational work, will be required to follow this subject. Computer literacy will be helpful but is not essential.
