主讲人：Lee D. Han, Professor of University of Tennessee
Dr. Han is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CE) and an Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) Collaborating Scientist at the University of Tennessee (UT). His fields of expertise and research interests include traffic engineering, application of advanced technologies to transportation, intelligent transportation systems (ITS), system modeling and simulations, traffic flow theory, traffic operations, transportation data and information systems, emergency evacuation and management, crash records and analysis, transportation logistics, operations research, and 3D visualizations.
Since 1985, Han has been actively involved in research activities in the area of transportation and traffic engineering. In terms of externally sponsored projects, Han was instrumental towards securing, managing, and conducting research studies. The total expenditure of all the projects he is involved in tops $10 million during the past decade. He has greatly reduced the fiscal burden of State support by recovering a large portion of his salary. Lists of his on-going projects and completed projects are provided at this site. In addition, other research oriented activities are also highlighted.
During his tenure at UT, Han also established a Transportation Systems Laboratory (TSL), which is a physical room (69 Perkins Hall) for faculty, visiting scholars, and students to use the latest computer hardware and software for transportation research as well as instruction/learning purposes. On the other hand, TSL is also a concept, which embodies Han's vision of a premiere program of research and education excellence in Transportation Systems Modeling.
