ITS Specialist at Connected Wise
PhD in Civil Engineering, Traffic & ITS Consultant
I am an expert in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), with experience in various transportation projects in ITS design, traffic operations and multi-modal planning. During my PhD research at the University of Central Florida, I achieved numerous publications in prestigious journals and conferences.
I manage all ITS field operations and device installations including RSUs, video camera systems and sensors.
I am responsible for ITS design on various projects from FDOT districts and Traffic Operation departments.
I focused on sustainability analysis of transportation systems, multi-modal planning and optimization in my PhD research.
Designing network/communication systems (e.g. fiber optic network setup, ODTR testing); configuring ITS devices and maintaining the systems.
Economic and environmental impact analysis of electric vehicles in mass and commercial transportation and vehicle-to-grid applications.
Life cycle sustainability assessment of emerging technologies (e.g. connected vehicles and alternative fuel vehicles).
Building smart technological solutions for wrong-way detections, emergency-vehicle detections and traffic counting.
