NEXTRANS will host a seminar by Dr. Moshe Ben-Akiva, Edmund K. Turner Professor of Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at Purdue University. The seminar, "Travel Demand Modeling for Congestion Pricing Analysis" will explore recent developments to models used to predict users' response to congestion pricing, including: discrete choice, travel time variability and time-of-travel choice.
Dr. Moshe Ben-Akiva is the Edmund K. Turner Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Director of the MIT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Lab. His research areas include demand and network modeling, market research, and econometrics. He has developed many of the discrete choice and demand modeling techniques that are being widely applied in a variety of disciplines and industries.
