Dr.ir. G. (Gonçalo) Correia

Dr. Gonçalo Correia has graduated from IST Lisbon, Portugal, in civil engineering. He took his Ph.D. in Transportation Systems at the same University in close connection with the MIT-Portugal program. He was then invited as an Assistant Professor at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, where he lectured and developed his first independent research. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Transport & Planning at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. His main research interest is in the planning and operations of transport systems in urban environments with the objective of sustainable development.

He focuses particularly on studying the use of Transport Demand Management strategies, innovative services, and technologies, such as ridesharing, carsharing and automated vehicles, to tackle urban congestion, which he studies using mainly operations research (mathematical optimization and simulation), data-driven AI methods and behavior modeling. At TU Delft he is particularly looking at the impacts of automated driving on mobility and urban development. He has been a member of numerous research projects such as the InnoVshare (carsharing cost-benefit analysis through agent-based simulation) and D2D100%EV (100% Electric automated vehicles for door-to-door transport) where he acted as Principal Investigator.

He has supervised successfully 7 Ph.D. theses and more than 50 master thesis projects in Portugal and the Netherlands. He is the author of more than 60 scientific publications mostly in journals indexed in WoS, including reputed journals such as Transportation Research Part A, B, C, D, E, and F (edited by Elsevier). He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Advanced Transportation (Wiley-Hindawi), associate editor of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazine, the IEEE Open Journal on ITS and he is part of the editorial board of several international journals including Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Reviews, and Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies. He has taught more than 12 courses in bachelor, master and Ph.D. programs both in Portugal and the Netherlands in the fields of operations research, transport modeling, and transport planning. He is an invited Lecturer at Beijing Jiao Tong University in China and Purdue University in the United States. He advises several companies and institutions on the future of mobility and he is an international speaker on the impacts of mobility innovations. Gonçalo co-directs the hEAT lab (research on electric and automated transport) that is part of the Department of Transport & Planning at TU Delft. Click here for more information on the hEAT lab.
