Biography

Dr Kun An received her Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong in 2014. She worked at the University of Illinois at Urbana & Champaign as a Postdoctoral researcher in 2015. Her research aims at addressing traffic and transport problems using advanced mathematical techniques including stochastic programming, robust programming and dynamic programming. This include work on sharing mobility (carsharing, ride-sharing, customized bus), driverless taxis, reliable transit network design, logistics and supply chain design, facility location problem, traffic operation and control.

Her current projects include Scalable urban traffic control framework driven by distributed information (ARC DP18, 2018-2020), transport methods for the stability of blood samples (Linkage Seed Fund, 2019).

Dr Kun An has published 2 book chapters and 21 peer-reviewed papers (15 on Q1 journals) with an H-index of 8. She has attended more than 10 international conferences. Due to the high-quality research achievements, she obtained the nomination prize of best paper awards at HKSTS 2013 and the 93rd TRB (the most comprehensive transport conference in the world with more than 5,000 presentations in nearly 800 sessions). She delivered presentations at ISTTT 2015 in Kobe, Japan, and at ISTTT 2017 in Chicago, US, which is the most influential international conference on transport modelling. She serves as a reviewer for over 10 journals including Transportation Research Part B, Part C, Part E, Part A, IEEE Transactions on ITS and serves as a detailed accessor for ARC Discovery Projects.
