Brian Park, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Virginia. Prior to joining at the University of Virginia, he was a Research Fellow at the National Institute of Statistical Sciences and a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at North Carolina State University. He also worked at the Texas Transportation Institute in Texas.
He is an editorial board member of the International Journal of Sustainable Transportation and the KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering. He is an elected member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society.
In 2008, Dr. Park spent his summer at the Netherlands Organization (TNO) Mobility and Logistics Department as a visiting researcher and provided research directions to their future simulation modeling.
Dr. Park received the B.S. and the M.S. from the Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea, in 1993 and 1995, respectively, and the Ph.D. from the Texas A&M University in 1998.
Dr. Park is a recipient of a Charley V. Wootan Award (for best Ph.D. dissertation) from the Council of University Transportation Centers in 1999. In 2004, he received Jack H. Dillard Outstanding Paper Award from the Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research.
