Zaid Saeed Khan is a Graduate Research Assistant in the Mobility Lab headed by Prof. Monica Menedez at NYU Abu Dhabi. He is also a Global PhD Student Fellow pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Transportation Planning and Engineering from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He holds a Bachelors's Degree in Computer Science from LUMS (Lahore University of Management Sciences, Pakistan), and a Masters's Degree in Computation for Design & Optimization from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA).
Zaid's research interests include connected and autonomous vehicles, modular vehicles, public transport, traveler information, and traveler behavior. His Masters thesis explored the effect of providing heterogeneous information to commuters on a stochastically congestible bottleneck link. At NYUAD, his initial research involved conducting high resolution traffic state estimation with sparse probe vehicle information using convolutional neural networks. Currently, he is working on developing algorithms and policies for the efficient and flexible operation of autonomous modular buses in urban networks.
