About rCITI

We are located in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNSW Sydney Kensington Campus.

rCITI was established in 2011 as a strategic initiative to consolidate and expand the diverse landscape of transport research across the university. We have continued to make remarkable strides since its inception.

Our Centre

rCITI is comprised of 6 Academics, and a team of research and professional staff and continues to be keenly supported by industry and government.

We have forged robust research partnerships in public and private sectors and across industries. Our collaborations have not only endured but have strengthened, underscoring the centre's commitment to impactful, sustained relationships.

Led by Professor Taha Hossein Rashidi

Professor Taha Hossein Rashidi is at the helm of rCITI serving as Director, an expert in travel demand and land use modelling, emerging mobility options, and intelligent transportation systems. rCITI's Deputy Director is Dr Divya Nair. Dr Nair's expertise is in infrastructure resilience, operations, traffic flow theory, autonomous vehicles, and humanitarian logistics.

rCITI is a world-leading organisation in integrated interdisciplinary transport research, development and education. We provide expertise and experience in mobility planning, analytics, and operations, with core objectives to drive efficiency, equality and emerging technologies in mobility systems.

We aim to pursue globally-leading interdisciplinary solutions for transport planning and management that integrate three critical aspects for societal impact:

  1. Emerging mobility technology
  2. Human behaviour and choice
  3. Institutional and market landscape

Relationship building a key priority

rCITI's key strength is to harness the rich interdisciplinary environment at UNSW. The centre thrives on robust collaborations across Civil, Environmental, Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, and Built Environment. This collaborative approach ensures a holistic perspective in addressing complex transport challenges.

We place a premium on building strong relationships with industry partners. These partnerships serve as conduits for translating our core research into practical tools and solutions that have a tangible impact on the industry. The centre has identified substantial opportunities for contribution at local, national, and international levels, with ongoing projects and integrated transport analyses already making a difference.
