Dr. Hernandez research derives knowledge from social sciences and computational sciences to create meaningful solutions for problems in Transportation Safety, Freight Logistics, Transportation Systems Modeling, and Disaster Management. He blends the development of new science-based approaches with practical applications and implementation.
His current areas of research interest are: Transportation safety modeling of all modes encompassing crash countermeasures, crash and safety analysis, and statistical modeling; Use of large scale disaggregate data sets for developing strategic, tactical, and operational models and solution methods for problems that arise in the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary areas of transportation systems. He is also interested in behavioral issues in natural disasters such as in earthquakes, travel demand modeling, freight supply & demand modeling, and supply chain logistics modeling.
Dr. Hernandez methodological research interests and expertise are in the areas of statistical & econometric and mathematical modeling, including discrete choice analysis, and network flow analysis & optimization. Dr. Hernandez utilizes interdisciplinary modeling techniques to address issues at the intersection of multiple disciplines."
