Dr. Tae J. Kwon joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta as an Assistant Professor in August 2016, shortly after earning his PhD degree at the University of Waterloo with the prestigious UW Engineering Doctoral Thesis Award. His current research areas include location optimization of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) facilities, spatial and temporal analyses of road traffic and safety using geostatistics, Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) Transportation, and application of Big Data for estimation and forecasting of road and traffic conditions. He is a member and communication coordinator of TRB surface transportation weather committee (AH010), and serves as a reviewer for several journals including Journal of Transportation Research Record, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, and Journal of Statistical Computing.
Dr. Kwon's current research areas are as follows:
