Before joining MIT, he was a Senior PostDoctoral Associate at SMART (Singapore) and a research scholar at LNEC (Portugal). His main research interests are the mathematical modeling and simulation of human mobility, smart mobility services, the development and assessment of new technologies in transportation systems and the statistical and data analysis of safety. The integrated simulation of travel behaviour and system performance in the presence of new smart mobility solultions is one of his active field of research.
Carlos is the project manager for our projects:
- Tripod: Sustainable Travel Incentives with Prediction, Optimization and Personalization (together with Prof. Ben-Akiva and Prof. Jessika Trancik)
- SimMobility (together witk Kakali Basak)
- Mobility of the Future (together with Dr. Jimi Oke)
Carlos was also the instructor for the Transportation core course 1.201 - Transportation Systems Analysis: Demand and Economics (Fall 2016) and the co-instructor for 1.074 - Multivariate Data Analysis (Spring 2016, Spring 2017) at MIT.
