Hernandez Research Group - Transportation Safety and Logistics (TranSaL)

The Hernandez Research Group uses its knowledge and experience to produce solutions to the complex and multifaceted problems inherent in transportation systems. His research derives knowledge from social sciences and computational sciences to create meaningful solutions for problems in Transportation Safety, Freight Logistics, Transportation Systems Modeling, and Disaster Management. He blends the development of new science-based approaches with practical applications and implementation.

Current areas of research interest for the group are:  Transportation safety modeling of all modes encompassing crash countermeasures, crash and safety analysis, and statistical modeling; Use of large scale disaggregate datasets for developing strategic, tactical, and operational models and solution methods for problems that arise in the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary areas of transportation systems. The group is also interested in behavioral issues in natural disasters such as in earthquakes, travel demand modeling, freight supply & demand modeling, and supply chain logistics modeling. Resource
