Hui is a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT Transit Lab and JTL Urban Mobility Lab. She earned her PhD and MA in GIS & Spatial Analysis from The Ohio State University, and her BS in Urban and Rural Planning and BA in Economics from Peking University.

Her areas of expertise lie in the application of geospatial analysis to examine the impacts of shared mobility on public transit system, transportation efficiency, and social equity. Her research focuses on the substitution vs. complementarity relationship between shared mobility and public transit, the vehicle occupancy efficiency of shared mobility, and the impacts of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on individual travel. She is currently working on projects with CTA on the relationship between shared mobility and public transit, and with WRI-Brasil on public transit user satisfaction modeling.
