Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies
The Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) undertakes graduate teaching, management development programs, grant and contract research and development in the fields of transport, infrastructure, logistics and supply chain management. ITLS is part of Australia's Key Centre of Excellence in Transport Research and Education an international collaboration at three nodes: ITLS Sydney, ITS Monash and ITLS Africa.
Professor Truong’s research interest is in the area of linking bottom-up transport and energy models to top-down economy-wide models for use in policy analysis of issues relating to the transport and energy sector, but have implications for the rest of the economy, for example, issues of transport infrastructure investment, and issues of renewable electricity introduction. The linking of these two types of models presents theoretical as well as empirical challenges requiring expert knowledge in the area of both disaggregate spatial approaches (often utilised in transport and energy research) as well as multi-sectoral and multi-regional economy-wide framework (often employed by top-down policy analysts). Since joining the ITLS as an Honorary Professor in 2009, Dr Truong has brought to ITLS his intensive knowledge in the latter area to complement with the expert knowledge of ITLS in the former area to produce several research papers that provide a foundation framework for linking these two different expert areas.
