Mr Nima Amini

Engineering
Sch: Civil & Environmental Eng

I commenced my PhD studies at UNSW in 2013, supervised by Prof Waller and Dr Gardner. I was awarded my undergraduate degree with honours from University of Melbourne in Geomatics Engineering. I have worked in civil consulting with experience in surveying, GIS, and for the past five years working as a traffic engineer/modeller. I have worked on a variety of projects including feasibility and economic analysis of transport projects. Most of my experience includes micro-simulation, nano-simulation and strategic modelling. I was awarded the best post-graduate award at the 2014 CAITR conference for my paper titled “Associations Between Health and Active Transportation”. I’m interested in novel traffic management measures and modelling techniques to predict their impact. I’m also interested in statistical techniques to assist in policy decisions.
