Power safer roads for smarter cities.

Dr. Samiul Hasan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering at the University of Central Florida. Prior to joining UCF, he worked as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia. Dr. Hasan has extensive experiences in working on transportation network modeling, big data analytics, machine learning, and transportation systems modeling research at MIT, Purdue, Transport for London, UK and CSIRO, Australia. He has gathered a unique set of skills and expertise through working on transportation data, crowdsource information, and social media data over a variety of contexts such as transit systems analysis, emergency management, travel behavior analysis, and real-time traffic information sharing. He is currently involved in several projects funded by Florida DOT related to transportation network modeling, traffic management, and big data analytics. He has recently developed a framework to include crowdsource data for facilitating integrated traffic management and tested the approach using FDOT 511 Twitter data. Dr. Hasan received Best Dissertation Prize from INFORMS Transportation and Logistics (TSL) Society for his work on data analytics developing a novel approach for activity-based travel behavior modeling. He has published data analytics approaches in top transportation and interdisciplinary journals such as Transportation Research Part B and Part C, IEEE Transactions in Intelligent Transportation Systems, PLOS ONE, and others and presented in workshops in top ranking data mining conferences (e.g., KDD, NIPS). In 2017, his students received First Prize at Transportation Data Challenge organized by NSF Midwest Big Data Hub and Honorable Mention Award at Data for Climate Action Challenge organized by UN Global Pulse.
