For about two months, we were hosting Sushmitha Sree from IIT Bombay on a short research internship. Sushmitha demonstrated a great enthusiasm and interest in transportation research and contributed to our ongoing work on pedestrian modelling of the Richmond Station. Thanks to Homayoun and Neda for their help, Sushmitha was able to improve the simulation model and showcase a nice application. We wish Sushmitha best of luck in her future studies and safe travels back to India. Hope to see her back in Melbourne.
On July 12, we welcomed Prof Kelly Clifton from Portland State University on campus for a short visit. Members of the CityX team had the opportunity to meet with her and present their research. It was a great pleasure to reconnect with Kelly. We wish her best of luck and safe travels back to the United States.
On June 29, we had the pleasure to welcome Prof Eric Miller from University of Toronto at Monash University. Members of the CityX team had a chance to meet with Prof Miller and gave a him a brief summary of our research projects. Prof Miller presented his ongoing research on activity-based model of Toronto TASHA.
CityX research was well represented at the NetSci 2017 which was held in Indianapolis, June 19-23. We had a poster presentation on community detection in mobility networks by Ingrida and a lectern presentation on taxi mobility by Homayoun. Dr. Saberi was also gave an invited talk on transportation networks at the Urban Systems and Network Science satellite workshop organized by Marta Gonzalez from MIT.
