Prior to joining Monash University, Liton has taught across three universities: Queensland University of Technology, Australia; University of Ulster, UK; and Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh.

Research interests

Liton possesses unique skillset in data analysis and visualisation including transport modelling, statistics, econometrics, GIS, and Remote Sensing. His research interest spans over three key areas of urban/transport planning:

  1. Effectiveness of strategic urban policies e.g. transit oriented development (TOD)innovation precinctsurban form and structure
  2. Socio-economic and travel behavioural impacts of transport infrastructure e.g. bicycle sharing schemes, light rail, airports
  3. Envisioning the future of cities e.g. smart cities, autonomous vehicle, climate vulnerability such as the urban heat island effect
