Samitha Samaranayake recently joined our group for a year as a Guest Professor from Cornell University.
Samitha’s research interest is in mathematical modeling and algorithm design for large-scale transportation network problems, and his current focus is on problems at the intersection of public transit and ride-sharing. In particular, he is interested in hybrid transit systems—services that are designed from the ground-up to fully integrate traditional fixed-line public transit and agile, demand-responsive modes.
He is currently on a Fulbright US Scholar fellowship to Denmark and will be studying problems at the intersection of vehicle electrification and multi-modal transportation systems.
We wish him a fun and productive time during his stay with us! 😊
