His work focuses on using data science and artificial intelligence (machine learning) to make transportation more equitable and sustainable. By bridging transportation engineering, data science, and urban planning, he takes an interdisciplinary approach to transportation research that connects technological innovations with community needs. He works closely with public agencies and industry partners to develop intelligent decision-support tools that can help them better plan for and manage new mobility systems such as shared e-scooters.
