Zhenliang (Mike) Ma is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, and Research Affiliate with the Transit Research Program at MIT. His research focused on the development of analytic and predictive models to provide decision support for demand management, operations planning and control in transit. In his doctoral research, Mike proposed an approach for trip travel time distribution estimation between any origin-destination pair at any time in urban transit network. He also investigated different factors’ impact on travel time reliability using automated data in transit. His master’s research focused on information fusion theory with applications in dynamic demand prediction and target tracking. He earns a PhD in Transportation Engineering from University of Queensland, Brisbane Australia, an MS and a BS in Information Science and Engineering from Shandong University, Jinan China.
