6:30-8 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center Part of "NYUAD Research Public Talks" WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

This talk focuses on the issue of urban mobility and the associated traffic congestion that is a concern in cities worldwide. With the increasing urban population and motorization rates, it is expected that congestion levels will continue to rise, along with negative externalities. The talk explores whether it is possible to predict how congestion spreads in a city, to develop proactive mitigation strategies, and to alleviate congestion by promoting more sustainable transportation modes. The talk also discusses how technology and information can be used to understand current mobility patterns and propose more sustainable alternatives for the future.
