Welcome to Nebiyou Tilahun‘s Urban Transportation & Behavior Research Group based in the Department of Urban Planning and Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Our group is interested in researching issues surrounding travel behavior, the built environment and transportation systems, and the social and economic outcomes related to transportation.
Currently we are working on several projects in collaboration with colleagues at UIC and other institutions. We released the Metropolitan Chicago Accessibility Explorer in June 2015. Along with colleagues, we also organized the 2014 NSF sponsored Big Data and Urban Informatics workshop. We are currently working on issues at the intersection of social exclusion and transport.
