UBC Okanagan researchers from the Centre for Transportation and Land Use Research (CeTLUR) will present their research this week at the 2020 Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The meeting features over 5-thousand presentations in nearly 800 sessions and workshops featuring topics related to the theme “A Century of Progress: Foundation for the Future.”
“This is the most reputed transportation conference engaging around 12,000 attendees every year, and it is important to present our findings to these major stakeholders from around the world,” explains Mahmudur Fatmi, assistant professor and principal investigator at the CeTLUR. The CeTLUR focuses on modeling transportation and land-use interactions including urban system simulation, autonomous and shared mobility, activity-based modeling, transit planning, vehicular emissions, and road safety.
CeTLUR researchers will present five full papers, and Fatmi will preside over one session during the four-day event. Topics will vary from modeling destination choice behavior for dockless bike sharing service users to developing methods for improved trip generation prediction, and modeling injury severity of road collisions.
“I am very proud of the contributions to the field that our group has achieved since arriving at UBC,” says Fatmi, “and we are excited to showcase our latest findings at TRB.”
Joining Fatmi in Washington will be graduate researchers Muntahith Orvin and Bijoy Saha.
The Transportation Research Board (TRB) 99th Annual Meeting will be held January 12–16 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
