  • 512 citations from 48 peer-reviewed journal articles (25 first-authored), 9 peer-reviewed conference papers (7 first-authored), and 2 book chapters.
  • His proposed endeavor is to conduct transportation-related research to address topics including driving behaviors, and transportation-related congestion, safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
  • As an expert in the field of transportation engineering, he wishes to continue his investigation into transportation topics including the driving behaviors and operations of vehicles such as motorcycles, the design and optimization of freight transportation, and traffic safety.
  • Attribute to his knowledge and expertise in the field, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for elite journals in the field and has already conducted at least 5 reviews for at least 4 journals.

We are grateful to him for his continued trust in us. We wish him the very best in his life.
