Bio

Asif has worked in various positions in the government and private consulting firms of Bangladesh. Before joining ITLS, he worked for the Roads and Highways Department where his responsibilities included construction, maintenance, and monitoring issues of bridges and highways. Asif's  research interests are the environmental problems related to transportation and policy evaluation for low carbon development in the transportation field. His supervisors are Professor Peter Stopher and Associate Professor Stephen Greaves, his thesis title is: Analysis of travel time expenditure and budgets from multi-day multi-year GPS data. This study aims to undertake a completely new exploration of the concept of stable travel-time budgets using multi-day and multi-year data collected by personalised GPS devices. If such budgets exist, many of the transport policies will need to be completely rethought.
