Michael A. Knodler, Jr. Ph.D, is a professor in the Transportation Engineering Program of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Dr. Gao has been an Associate Professor for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering since September 2013.
Dr. Ni has been a Professor for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering since 2011.
I have research experience in traffic operations, management, and safety with a focus on multimodal transportation systems.
I have research experience in modeling urban street networks, and my interests are in the operation, management, design, and safety of large-scale multimodal transportation systems.
My interdisciplinary research focuses on developing computational models, automated algorithms and hardware systems using remote sensing technologies and spatial analysis techniques as they are applied in the fields of transportation asset management, geometry design and roadway safety, pavement preservation and maintenance, and many other critical transportation applications.
My research focus lies in accessibility, resilience and sustainability in networks. I am interested in solving problems at the nexus of transportation, energy and infrastructure. My methods combine data mining, network science, machine learning and optimization.
Dr. Collura is the Director of the UMass Aviation Center and Professor Emeritus for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Dr. Shuldiner is Professor Emeritus for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
