The Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at FIU is pleased to announce that the second lecturer of the 2013 FIU CEE Distinguished Speaker Series is Hani Mahmassani, Ph.D. of Northwestern University, who will be delivering a lecture entitled “Travel Time Reliability:  Network-level Characterization and System Management Implications” on Friday, March 8, 2013 at 2:00 pm in room 1115 of the FIU Engineering Center.

Dr. Mahmassani holds the William A. Patterson Distinguished Chair in Transportation at Northwestern and serves as Director of the university’s Transportation Center. He joined Northwestern in 2007 from the University of Maryland and, previously, the University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. Mahmassani’s research focuses on the role of information and communication in the operation of transportation systems, and the interaction between user decisions and system performance.  He has developed simulation and optimization platforms for large-scale transportation networks that support the operation and planning of these systems, including vehicular traffic, pedestrians and crowds, as well as intermodal freight and logistics systems.

The March 8 presentation by Dr. Mahmassani will discuss research findings regarding the complex dynamics among interacting agents of the factors affecting travel time reliability.

We hope you will join us for this lecture, either in person or via live webinar. The webinar is co-sponsored by the Transportation Research Board Committee on Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics, the Southeastern Transportation Research, Innovation, Development and Education Center (STRIDE) and the National Center for Transportation Systems Productivity and Management (NCTSPM). Details are below.
