Summary: Hani S. Mahmassani holds the William A. Patterson Distinguished Chair in Trans-
portation and serves as Director of the Transportation Center at Northwestern,
which he joined in 2007 from the University of Maryland and previously the Uni-
versity of Texas at Austin. His research focuses on the role of information and
communication in the operation of transportation systems, and the interaction be-
tween user decisions and system performance. He has developed simulation and
optimization platforms for large-scale transportation networks that support opera-
tion and planning of these systems, including vehicular traffic, pedestrians and
crowds, as well as intermodal freight and logistics systems.
NICO coffee hour will follow for questions, networking and collaboration.
