Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering
Yafeng Yin is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He investigates critical issues associated with the design, operations, regulation, and management of innovative mobility services and systems. The goal is to support them in becoming integral components of transportation systems, improving system connections and integration, yielding efficient and multimodal mobility of people and goods, and enhancing rural underserved communities’ access to employment, education and other lifeline opportunities. He is focus on understanding the interaction between travelers, transportation modes and infrastructure, and then modeling the consequence of the interaction. With the model established, he then investigates how to optimize the design and operations of transportation systems. In his work, he often needs to solve large-scale optimization models.
