Watch a recording of the webinar:
Lei Zhang, Ph.D. is the Herbert Rabin Distinguished Professor and Director of the Maryland Transportation Institute in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland College Park. Current research projects, funded by NSF, USDOE, USDOT, FHWA, SHRP2, NCHRP and Maryland DOT and Maryland SHA, aim to: 1) build behaviorally sound and computationally efficient integrated travel behavior and dynamic traffic models; 2) incentivize individual behavioral changes that are also system optimal through personalized information and control signals; and 3) create a large-scale agent-based simulation of social, communications, vehicle and transportation networks.
