Li Jin, Using Queuing Models to Design Connected and Autonomous Transportation Systems
Li Jin (金力) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering. He is also affiliated with the C2SMART Department of Transportation Center. His research focuses on developing resilient control algorithms for cyber-physical systems with guarantees of efficiency in nominal settings, robustness against random perturbations, and survivability under strategic disruptions. The theoretical foundation of his work includes the stochastic process and control theory. Specific applications of his work include connected and autonomous vehicles, automated highways, urban operations research, and air traffic control. Li joined NYU in Fall 2018 as a tenure-track assistant professor. He received B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2011, M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2012, and Ph.D. in Transportation from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2018.
