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

Other areas I am interested in, currently reading about regularly and would like to explore in near future:

  • Advance social network analysis methods - ERGMs, stochastic actor-orientated models, relational event model, bi-partite network analysis

  • Bayesian data analysis

  • Topological data analysis (like persistent homology)

  • Time series data analysis for short-term transportation demand/state prediction

  • Automatic-differentiation, tensor and GPU/TPU based model estimation (see TensorFlow)
