Ahmed El-Geneidy

Assistant Professor
School of Urban Planning

McGill University

Member of CIRRELT
Group leader of TRAM, a subgroup of MTG

Ahmed's research interests include land use and transportation planning, transit operations and planning, travel behaviour analysis including both motorized (Auto and Transit) and non-motorized (Bicycle and Pedestrian) modes of transportation, travel behaviour of disadvantaged populations (seniors and people with disabilities) and measurements of accessibility and mobility in urban contexts.

Naveen Eluru

Assistant Professor
Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics

McGill University

Naveen Eluru's primary research areas of interest include transportation planning, socio-demographic and land-use modeling, sustainable urban design, integrated demand supply models, activity time-use analysis and transportation safety. Naveen is primarily involved in the formulation and development of discrete choice models that allow us to better understand the behavioral patterns involved in various decision processes. He has worked extensively with discrete choice models accounting for self-selection, simultaneous equation modeling, generalized ordered logit models, stated preference studies, multiple discrete-continuous frameworks, copula based models, composite likelihood approaches and multi-dimensional choice processes as part of his research. He is also actively involved in the development of activity-based modeling software for urban metropolitan regions. Naveen is currently a member of Transportation Research Board (TRB) committee on Transportation Education and Training (ABG20). Naveen is an avid reader and enjoys activities that keep him in touch with nature.

Murtaza Haider

Associate Professor
Ted Rogers School of Retail Management

Ryerson University

Director of the Institute of Housing & Mobility
Director of Regionomics

Murtaza Haider is an associate professor of Supply Chain/Logistics Management and the Director of the Institute of Housing and Mobility Studies at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University. He is also an adjunct professor in the Faculties of Engineering at McGill University and the University of Toronto. Haider has researched shippers' decision-making, market shares competition between rail and trucking, freight planning capabilities in Canada, and the impact of sea-port capacities on Canada's global trade. Haider's research interests also include equity and poverty alleviation through infrastructure development. He has undertaken research on the mobility needs of single mothers in Quebec as well as exploring the dynamics of low home ownership rates among aboriginal households in urban Canada. Haider has also explored affordable transportation alternatives for the urban poor in South Asia. Furthermore, he has researched the role of community-based water supply and sanitation projects in improving health and livelihoods of low-income households in South Asia. His work experience includes Nesbitt Burns and United Press International.

Marianne Hatzopoulou

Assistant Professor
Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics

McGill University

Marianne's research interests revolve around integrating travel demand and environmental simulation. She is interested in modeling the interactions between daily activities and travel patterns of urban dwellers and the generation and dispersion of traffic emissions in urban environments. She is also involved in the development of evaluation tools for bridging transport policy analysis with decision-making. She examines ways in which the sustainability impacts of transport policy scenarios can be quantified through the development of performance measures linked with large-scale land-use and transport models.

Raphaël Fischler

Associate Professor
School of Urban Planning

McGill University

Raphaël Fischler is Associate Professor in the School of Urban Planning at McGill. He is interested in the interaction of land use and transportation and in the linkage of land-use planning and transportation planning. He considers these questions at various scales, from the local, where the design of the public realm matters greatly, to the metropolitan, where long-range policies and governance are crucial. He contributes to transportation decision-making in Montréal and the region through advice and research for municipal, metropolitan, and provincial agencies.

Luis Miranda-Moreno

Assistant Professor
Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics

McGill University

Member of CIRRELT

Luis's specialty is in transportation engineering with a focus on traffic safety issues, travel behavior and demand modeling, and evaluation of sustainable transport strategies. His research interests include the development of methodologies for the identification of hazardous locations and the evaluation of safety improvement programs, the understanding of short and long-term changes in travel behaviour and transportation demand, the impacts of transport on the environment and energy efficiency measures.
