Dr. Qijian Gan earned his bachelor’s degree in Automatic Control from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2009. He earned both his master’s degree and Ph.D. in Transportation Systems Engineering from the University of California, Irvine, in 2010 and 2014. In March 2015, Dr. Gan joined the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Irvine as an Assistant Project Scientist.
Currently, Dr. Gan is collaborating with Research Engineer, Gabriel Gomes, along with the ITS director, Prof. Alexandre Bayen, on one UCConnect project related to the estimation of VMT, VHT, delay and LOS through data fusion in urban networks. The research outcomes can potentially be applied to the current Connected Corridor project in PATH.
