About me

I am a PhD Candidate at the Northwestern University's Transportation Systems Analysis and Planning Program in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I am currently working at the Transportation Center as a graduate research assistant. I am interested and have strong skills in analyzing data, building machine learning and econometric models and using these to understand and solve transportation problems.

Research Interests

Areas I am deeply interested in and have worked in the past:

  • Travel demand forecasting and travel behavior analysis

  • Discrete choice modeling and other applied econometrics methods

  • Social network analysis

  • Transportation application of machine learning

  • Crash data analysis

  • Analysis of passive data sources (like GPS data) for transportation planning purposes
