Dr. Mesa-Arango Joins the Civil Engineering Department
Dr. Rodrigo Mesa-Arango, an expert in Freight Logistics and Transportation Network Modeling, joined the department of Civil Engineering in Fall 2015. His work has strong foundations in mathematical programming, algorithm design, and behavioral modeling. His research areas include network modeling, behavioral analysis, traffic assignment, disaster management, transportation economics, and transportation planning. He has used complex network analysis to describe the evolution of the global maritime trade network; implemented behavioral models into agent-based traffic simulations; developed frameworks to quantify highway network disruptions; proposed paradigms for empty trip estimation in freight transportation models; and studied the car truck interaction in dynamic traffic assignment models.
