Chinh Ho is a Senior Research Fellow in Transport Economics and Transport Planning. Acting as a member of scientific and technical committee, Chinh has provided strategic and operational advices on urban and regional planning, including economic analysis of transport infrastructure projects in Vietnam, urban mobility for developing world, and bus services in NSW.
Chinh completed his PhD in 2013 on 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. 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. Chinh was awarded the John H Taplin Prize for the best paper presented at the Australasian Transport Research Forum 2012, the Innovation Grant from World Conference on Transport Research 2013 and the Michael Beesley Award for the best paper presented to Thredbo 2013 by early career researchers. Chinh also 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, Chinh obtained a masters degree in Transport Planning from Nagoya University, Japan and led an infrastructure team at NewCC Construction and Consultant firm.
Dr Chinh Ho was quoted by ABC News Fact Check about commuting time in Sydney and how it has changed over the last decade.
Sydney Morning Herald
The Sydney Morning Herald published an article about the spike in bus patronage and use in Sydney's urban fringes which quotes Dr Chinh Ho and Professor Corinne Mulley.

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.
