Center for Transportation Research | Collaborate. Innovate. Educate.
In January 2020, Dr. Kara Kockelman moderated TRB’s first international online Bridging Transportation Researchers (BTR) Conference. Track One included the topics Transport Research Methods and Big Data, Public Transport, and Future Transport Technologies and MaaS. This track included Dr. Kockelman’s research with Weijia (Vivian) Li “How Does Machine Learning Compare To Conventional Econometrics For Transport Data Sets? A Test Of ML vs MLE” and with Khashayar Khavarian “Life-cycle Analysis of Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing Vehicles.”
