Kouros Mohammadian


Kouros Mohammadian is an assistant professor of Transportation Engineering at UIC. Before joining UIC, Kouros held a faculty position in Civil Engineering at California State University. He earned his Ph.D. degree from the University of Toronto and worked as a post-doctoral research associate at McMaster University.

Kouros has a broad range of expertise in transportation engineering, planning, design, and operations. His primary scientific effort has been in the areas of micro simulation, demand modeling, land-use modeling, spatial analysis, transportation cost analysis, and transportation systems optimization. He directs several research projects funded by various agencies including US Federal Highway Administration and Illinois Department of Transportation. He has been an active member of several national and international transportation organizations including TRB committee on traveler behavior and values and committee on statistical methodology and software in transportation research.



Transportation Planning and Travel Demand Forecasting, Transportation Cost Modeling, Performance Evaluation of Transportation Systems, Traffic Engineering and Signal Control, Applications of New Technologies in Transportation, Microsimulation of Urban Activities, Urban Transportation and Land-Use Systems, Applied Econometrics and Data Mining.
