Collecting freight data from various facilities poses a significant challenge, particularly in regions where data resources are limited. Without sufficient data, estimating freight demand and comprehending freight patterns becomes problematic in these regions. To address this issue, implementing novel statistical approaches, policy-making, technology intervention, and non-tradition approaches offer better solutions. My research investigates cost-effective strategies to enhance freight transportation infrastructure, thereby improving logistics and supply chain management efficiency.

Research Interests: Freight Demand Modelling, Transferability, Transport Policy, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in Transportation Planning

Thesis Title:  Transferability Approach for Freight Data Measurement and Model Development in Resource-constrained Regions

Current Status: Project Engineer at Birla Institute of Technology and Science Pilani, Hyderabad Campus

Understanding passenger and freight travel behaviour are critical for transportation system analysis and operational planning that need to account for supply and demand dynamics. However, describing and predicting the behaviour of agents is extremely challenging. Sophisticated mathematical models are required to better represent individuals’ or firms’ decisions among mutually exclusive alternatives. The broad goal of my research is to better understand the interplay of agent behaviour with engineering, investment, and policy choices for energy-efficient transportation technologies.

Research Interests: Freight Transportation Planning, Transportation Energy, Emissions, and Other Externalities, City Logistics and Last-Mile Delivery Routing, Smart Cities, Multimodality and Emerging Vehicle Technologies, Virtual and Augmented Reality for Engineering Design

Thesis Title:  Measurement, Aggregation, Modelling, Transferability Analysis and Externalities of Freight (Trip) Generation
