Areas of Interest:

  • Transportation network modelling and simulation
  • Discrete choice modeling
  • Demand modeling
  • Activity-based modeling

At the moment, I am working to develop mode choice and route choice models for Sydney transport network and I hope the outcomes are well-developed choice models that results in precise prediction of individual's mode and route choice across Sydney. These models can well be integrated within the agent-based models that exists for Sydney and leads to an enhancement in their accuracy and performance.

Transportation is a dynamic field. Therefore, conducting research in this area requires consistent learning and development which helps me grow. That is why I am interested in this field of research. I am also really honored to be a Ph.D. student at the Research Centre for Integrated Transport Innovation (rCITI) at UNSW, since it is a top-notch transport research institution across the globe that pursues high-level transport research.

I would like to share the best piece of advice I have ever been given: It is of great importance to enjoy the journey and to get the most out of it while trying to achieve your goals.

As my future goal, I hope to gain a lot of experience and skills in research and modeling in transport field during my Ph.D. journey to become an expert and a successful researcher who can contribute the most to solving emerging transport-related issues and help to create a sustainable and well-performed transport network for the city.
