Key Highlights:

  • Consistently involved in projects that advance ‘start-of-the-art’ transportation engineering in Ontario, such as High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) forecasting, evaluation of managed lanes (HOV, High-Occupancy / Toll [HOT], commercial vehicle, and event-related traffic lanes), and development and evaluation of analytical procedures for the evaluation of roundabouts and work-zones
  • Contributed to the more widespread and accepted use of traffic simulation as an analytical tool in Ontario, including proof-of-concept evaluation of a GTA-wide, three-level modelling framework (SimFrame) and application of micro-simulation on more than 60 assignments
  • Principal author of a paper forecasting the implications of weekend closures of the Highway 401 express lanes, including the estimation of changes to travel patterns and the evaluation of operational implications using micro-simulation; awarded the Transportation Association of Canada’s President’s Medal (2005)
