Chinh holds a Bachelor of Civil Engineering with first class Honours in Bridge and Highway Engineering from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam where he was a full-time lecturer. Before joining ITLS to pursue his PhD study Chinh obtained a master degree in Transport Planning from Nagoya University, Japan in 2010. During his doctoral study, Chinh worked part-time as a Project Officer with the Bureau of Transport Statistics, Transport for New South Wales. In 2013, Chinh completed his PhD research about intra-household interactions and group decisions in travel mode choice, with a particular focus on planning strategies and segments of car users to encourage the use of more sustainable travel modes. His research has been published in top journals, presented to well-recognised conferences, and awarded several prestigious prizes including Michael Beesley (Thredbo 13), Innovation Grant (WCTR 13), John H Taplin (ATRF 35).
Chinh's research interests include activity-based modelling, joint decision behaviour, public transport and land use integration, bus performance, discrete choice models and data visualisation. At ITLS, Chinh involves in the development of a new version of the Transportation and Environment Strategy Impact Simulator (TRESIS) and other projects focusing on the use of stated choice experiments to study individual and group choices, and heuristics in travel behaviour.
