Bio

With a background in computer science, Andrew's work has expanded into a range of research, teaching and consulting activities in the fields of transport, logistics, and discrete choice modelling. After working as a research analyst at ITLS for a number of years, Andrew began tutoring in 2007, commenced a PhD in 2008, began lecturing in 2010, and commenced his current position in 2012. His is currently teaching Supply Chain Planning Systems, Infrastructure Management Case Studies, and Research Case Study I/II. Andrew's PhD, which examined techniques for handling attribute nonattendance in discrete choice models, was awarded the prestigious 2012 Eric Pas Dissertation Prize by the International Association for Travel Behaviour Research. He has broad research interests, spanning advanced discrete choice modelling methodology and its application across many fields, choice heuristics, stated choice experimental designs, final mile logistics, freight transport, and air travel choice. His publication record includes top tier journals such as Transportation and Transportation Research Part B. Andrew is a co-developer of Ngene, a widely used software package which generates stated choice experimental designs. In addition to his academic pursuits, Andrew has consulted for government, industry and banks, in the areas of freight transport, and toll road and public transport evaluation and modelling.

  • Motorists willing to pay more - with strings attached 27 Jun 2012

    Sydney Morning Herald

    Research conducted by David Hensher, John Rose and Andrew Collins at the University of Sydney Business School Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies, has found that more than 80 per cent of Sydney residents would support new measures to charge motorists for driving into or across the city.
