v “Synthesis of Freight Origin-Destination Matrices from Intelligent Transportation Systems Data (CAREER Award, CAREER- 0245165)” (National Science Foundation; March 2001- February 2008; Total budget = $375,000). This project intends to develop techniques to dynamically estimate OD matrices from ITS data for traffic control and planning purposes.
v Director of the Center for Intermodal Freight Mobility and Security (jointly with the University of Maryland); 2005- Funded by the Federal Highway Administration (Total budget: $700,0000). This project focuses on the development of new modeling paradigms for freight security and mobility analyses.
v "Dynamic Game Theoretic Models for Urban Freight Systems” (National Science Foundation CMS-0324380); August 2003-July 2007; Professors Terry Friesz and Warren Powell, Co-PIs; Total budget=$482,611). This project intends to develop a new formulation for urban goods processes based on dynamic game theory.
v "Impacts of Extreme Events: A Systematic Analysis of Individual Travel Choice Decisions” (National Science Foundation; CMS-0301391, May 2003-February 2007; Professors Robert Paaswell and Chandra Bhat are Co-PIs; Total budget: $249,573). This project assessed changes on passenger travel behavior produced by the 9/11 attack.
2. Completed projects
"Potential for Off-Peak Deliveries to Commercial
Areas" (New York State Department of Transportation, January 2003-December
2006) (Total budget = $300,000). This project focuses on the definition of
policies aimed at increasing off-peak deliveries to commercial areas in

This project intends to create the foundations for long term collaboration between American and Latin American scientists.
v “Evaluation Study of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s Value Pricing Initiative” (Federal Highway Administration Value Pricing Program January 2002 – March 2005; Total budget = $750,000). This project intends to assess behavioral and systemwide impacts of the pricing initiative at the PANYNJ facilities.
v “Evaluation Study of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s Value Pricing Initiative” (Federal Highway Administration Value Pricing Program; January 2002 – June 2005; Total budget = $450,000). This project intends to assess behavioral and systemwide impacts of the pricing initiative at the NJTA facilities.
v “Impacts of Extreme Events on Passenger Travel Behavior” (Professor R. Paaswell is Co-Principal Investigator) (National Science Foundation; April 1, 2002 – March 31, 2003; Total budget = $50,000). This project assessed changes on passenger travel behavior produced by the 9/11 attack.
v “Integrative Freight Market Simulation” (National Science Foundation, CMS-1079266; September 2000-August 2002; Total budget = $84,500). This project developed a new modeling framework for freight movements on the basis of a market equilibrium formulation.
Factors in Nighttime Construction Zones” (New Jersey Department of
Transportation; October 2000-February 2001; Total budget = $85,000). This
project focused on analyzing human factors in nighttime construction zones to
define strategies to mitigate the negative impacts upon workers.

project included freight demand modeling for the
Plan for the Development of the Regional Freight Model” (New York Metropolitan
Transportation Council; January 2000-May 2001; Total budget = $100,000). This
multiuniversity research project defined a development process for the regional
freight model to be developed by NYMTC.
Generation at Marine Container Terminals” (PSC-CUNY; August 1999-July 2001;
Total budget = $20,000) As part of this project, conducted in collaboration with
the American Association of Port Authorities, data was collected and models of
truck-trip generation at container terminals were developed.
