Haris Koutsopoulos

Haris N. Koutsopoulos is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, and research affiliate with the Transit Research Program at MIT. He also holds a position as Guest Professor of Transport Science at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He has extensive experience in modeling Intelligent Transportation Systems and developing simulation-based dynamic traffic assignment methods, traffic simulation models at various levels of resolution, simulation tools for the analysis of urban transit operations, and methods for processing and using data from opportunistic sensors for monitoring and control of transport system operations (traffic and transit). At KTH he established the iMobility laboratory. The lab receives real time floating car and other traffic related data (e.g. traffic counts and speeds, weather), archived transit AFC and AVL data, and uses models to support applications such as monitoring and management of transport systems and multimodal travel planning services. For the work related to the iMobility lab he received the IBM Smarter Planet Award in 2010.
