主讲人：Gonçalo Homem de Almeida Correia
Dr. Gonçalo Correia is an Associate Professor at the Department of Transport & Planning at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. His main research interest is in the planning and operations of transport systems in urban environments with the objective of sustainable development. He focuses particularly on studying the use of Transport Demand Management strategies, innovative services, and technologies, such as ridesharing, carsharing, and automated vehicles, to tackle urban congestion, which he studies using mainly operations research (mathematical optimization and simulation), data-driven AI methods and behavior modeling. He is part of the editorial board of several international journals including Transportation Research Part E, Part C, and Part A (Elsevier). He has taught more than 12 courses in bachelor, master, and Ph.D. programs both in Portugal and the Netherlands. He advises several companies and institutions on the future of mobility, and he is an international speaker on the impacts of mobility innovations. Gonçalo co-directs the hEAT lab (research on electric and automated transport) and he is currently the coordinator of the Traffic and Transport track of the Civil Engineering master of TU Delft.
In this presentation, Gonçalo will commence by introducing the Department of Transport & Planning, after which he will immerse the audience in his research in the realm of sustainable urban mobility as co-director of the hEAT lab, in collaboration with peers and research institutions. Gonçalo will delve into several notable trends in urban mobility research, encompassing the incorporation of automated vehicles into multimodal transport networks, the complexities of operating electric mobility systems, the interplay between public transport provision and urban development, and the disruptive influence of shared on-demand transport platforms such as Didi and Uber. Throughout this concise presentation, Gonçalo will not only address research inquiries and methodologies but also provide a glimpse into the future research pathways within this dynamic domain.
