Biography

Dr. Mahmudur Fatmi is a transportation professor at the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Okanagan campus. He received his PhD from Dalhousie University in Nov. 2017. Dr. Fatmi has worked as a post-doctoral associate for few months immediately after his PhD. He has started as an assistant professor at UBC from July 2018. Dr. Fatmi’s contributions have been recognized through several national, provincial, and university scholarships, including Transport Canada Scholarship, and Nova Scotia Research and Innovation Scholarship, among others.

Dr. Mahmudur Fatmi leads the transportation and land use modelling research group at the UBC. His research interest includes travel behaviour analysis, transportation and land use interaction, urban system simulation, activity-based modelling, and road safety, among others. Dr. Fatmi contributes in developing econometric modelling methods, and agent-based microsimulation models to assist in making effective transportation and land use policies and infrastructure investment decisions.
