Dr.ir. G. (Gonçalo) Correia

Dr. Gonçalo Correia has graduated in IST Lisbon, Portugal, in civil engineering. He took his Ph.D. in Transportation Systems at the same University in close collaboration 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. Since 2014 he has been an Assistant 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 dedicating particular attention to the impacts of automated driving on mobility and urban development.

He has supervised successfully 6 Ph.D. theses and 45 master thesis projects in Portugal and the Netherlands. He is the author of 51 scientific publications mostly in journals indexed in ISI, including 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 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 12 courses in bachelor, master and Ph.D. programs both in Portugal and the Netherlands in the fields of operations research and transport modeling. He is an invited Lecturer in Beijing Jiao Tong University where he teaches operations research on the TUDelft+BJTU joint bachelor in Transportation. 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.

Biography

Dr. Gonçalo Correia is an Assistant Professor at the department of transport and planning at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology since 2014. He works on transport modeling of multimodal urban networks. His main research interest is on understanding transport systems and their relation to spatial organization in urban environments with the objective of sustainable development. He focuses particularly in the use of Transport Demand Management strategies and measures such as carpooling and carsharing. At the TU Delft he is looking at the impacts of automated driving in mobility and urban development. He participates in several committees of the Transportation Research Board and has participated in numerous research projects such as the InnoVshare (carsharing cost benefit analysis through simulation) and D2D100%EV (100% Electric and automated vehicles for door to door transport) where he acts as Principal Investigator. He has supervised successfully two PhD thesis and more than 20 master thesis. He is the author of 18 scientific publications in journals indexed in ISI, including transportation research part A, B, C and E (Elsevier). In 2015 he won the Orange D4D (Data for Development) Challenge of using cellphone data to plan transportation networks in developing countries. He has taught 9 courses in bachelor and master program both in Portugal and the Netherlands in the fields of operations research and transport modeling.
