Emerging Transportation Engineering Topics Using City as a Lab: A Roundtrip Story between Academia

Are you interested in studying how the urban environment can be used to impact the daily lives of millions? Do you want to understand how policymakers bring academic research to fruition? Or, perhaps, you have some nagging questions about your undergraduate studies and navigating university to be successful? Come join us to learn and network about transportation research and academia. This event will be jointly hosted by NYU’s C2SMART lab, the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at North South University, IEEE Student Branch and North South University, Women in Engineering Affinity Group at IEEE NSU, and the NYU ITE/ITS student chapter. The event will consist of a seminar by C2SMART’s Dr. Jingqin Gao about emerging transportation engineering topics and the urban environment as a sandbox for transportation research, from both the agency and academic perspectives.

Dr. Jingqin (Jannie) Gao, completed her Ph.D. in Transportation Planning and Engineering at NYU Tandon, and is currently working as a lead researcher at C2SMART University Transportation Center funded by US Department of Transportation. She studied Science and Technology of Optical Information and received her B.S. from Tongji University and her M.S in Transportation Planning and Engineering from New York University. Her research interests lie in big data and artificial intelligence solutions for transportation, emerging technologies such as connected vehicles, traffic simulation modeling, parking management and transportation economics. Before joining NYU, she worked for the New York City Department of Transportation on modeling and data analysis to support the agency’s internal planning and technical review processes. Jingqin plays a leadership role both within her research group and for the larger NYU Tandon community, serving as the past president of the student chapters of the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the Intelligent Transportation Society.
