I am a Professor of Transportation in the Department of Geography at UCSB since 2004. From 1991 to 2004 was a faculty member in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at PennState University where I also directed a variety of centers and research programs. I got a Laurea Magistrale in Engineering (5 years with a thesis) from the University of Calabria (Italy) in 1986, a Masters in Engineering from the University of Michigan Ann Arbor in 1987, and a Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of California Davis in 1991. I am also the co-founder of the Journal Transportation Letters (Taylor&Francis publishers), published more than 350 articles and reports, and edited and wrote three books published by Elsevier and CRC press.
My most recent research projects include: Revisiting the Impact of Teleworking on Activity-travel Behavior using Recent Data and Sequence-based Analytical Techniques; Vertical Equity Statewide Pilot, Data Inventory, and Guidelines for Performance Based Planning; Qatar Activity-based Model; Long Distance Travel in the California Household Travel Survey (CHTS) and Social Media Augmentation; Spatial Transferability Using Synthetic Population Generation Methods; Business Establishment Survival and Transportation System Level of Service; SCAG Activity-based Travel Demand Model Development: Development of Simulator of Activities, Greenhouse (gas) Emissions, Networks, and Travel (SimAGENT); and the California Household Travel Survey Management Consultant.
