Bio

After completing her Master of Information Technology at the University of Sydney, Wen worked for ITLS and joined Professor Peter Stopher's team in February 2009, as a Research Analyst in GPS related research projects, responsible for testing GPS devices, map editing, geo-coding, data validation and household travel behaviour data analysis.

In January 2011, Wen left ITLS and worked as a Data Analyst/Consultant in Insync Survey Pty Ltd, focusing on survey design, survey administration, data analysis and reporting for local government research projects and stakeholder surveys.

Wen re-joined Professor Stopher's team in July 2012, as well as carrying out research data analysis tasks, Wen also provides administrative support for Professor Stopher's projects and manages travel survey logistics.

MetroScan-TI

There is a recognised need within government and industry for having a capability to undertake a quick scan of a large number of candidate transport, infrastructure, and land-use projects and policies and prioritise them based on passenger and freight demand forecasts, benefit-costs ratios and economy-wide outcomes.

The MetroScan-TI project aims to provide this capability to governments and industries by applying High Performance Computing techniques to “deliver vital demand forecasts and a detailed assessment in a very short time frame”. The project also aims to provide a framework in which new models being developed by researchers at The University can be tested and applied.

MetroScan-TI has a significant potential to provide a transformational impact on a wide-range of policy decisions, both in Sydney and elsewhere, by providing a method for evaluating many possible initiatives on a range of measures.
