Gennady Waizman, PhD student
PhD topic: Modeling traffic accidents
I received my MSc. in Applied Geodesy from the State University of Land Use Planning, Moscow, Russia.
My PhD studies at the Porter School of Environmental Science are devoted to modeling traffic accidents.
I develop driver’s and pedestrian’s behavioral algorithms that are based on collision avoidance view of human motion. Drivers and pedestrians are combined within the spatially explicit dynamic agent-based simulations for investigating accident dynamics at the “black spots” – location where the accident rate is steadily high.
