ISE Welcomes Jeff Ban as Affiliated Faculty

Jeff Ban, Associate Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering, joined ISE as an affiliated faculty. Jeff regularly interacts with ISE faculty and is active in INFORMS. His research focuses on modeling and simulation that aim to reveal the complex dynamic, stochastic, and evolving interactions among the critical components of transportation systems, with the purpose to develop effective, efficient, and sustainable methodologies to mange wide-area and multi-modal transportation systems. His current research interests are theoretical and algorithmic issues of dynamic transportation network modeling; Mobile sensing (such as GPS-enabled cellular phones) for transportation system performance measurement, state estimation, optimal traffic control and management, and related issues such as privacy protection; Connected/Autonomous Vehicles; Transportation Big Data analytics; and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) that focuses on applying advanced technologies to various traffic/transportation applications.
