Research Approach

Our research focuses on three basic inter-related areas fundamental to ensuring that mobility systems can enhance human development and quality of life:

  • Behavior :: understanding the way people and goods move through cities, the types of vehicles they own and use, where they decide to locate, etc.
  • Modeling :: translating behavioral knowledge into predictions about how the system might evolve and respond to changes and interventions.
  • Strategy :: devising, demonstrating and assessing new ways of skillfully adapting knowledge into successful plans and policies for more sustainable mobility.

Underlying our work in the above areas, we also focus on digitalization, the ongoing evolution of communications, media, and computational technologies dramatically changing the ways we can understand, simulate, and act on mobility systems.
