Experience

Institute of Transportation Studies, Irvine, CA

        Graduate Research Assistant, Sept 2006~Current

        Ports project (Phase I, II, and III) funded by University of California Transportation Center (UCTC)       

             - Proposed an integrated evaluation framework of traffic congestion, air quality and health impact.

                 - Performed network building of freight freeway corridors, sub-area analysis, and O-D estimation using transportation              planning tool (TransCAD) and microscopic traffic simulation (TransModeler).

                 - Conducted analyses of macro/microscopic emission models (Emfac/CMEM), dispersion models (Calpuff), and health              impact models (BenMap).

 

MIT Intelligent Transportation Systems Program, Cambridge, MA

        Research Assistant, Sept 2004~June 2006

        Next Generation Simulation (NGSIM) project funded by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

                 - Developed a single-level gap acceptance model at congested freeway merges including model framework, estimation,              identification, calibration, and validation using Gauss, Matlab, and MITSIMLab.

                 - Performed smoothing vehicle trajectory data using local regressions.

                 - Identified and validated target lane changing model using MITSIMLab.
