Eren Erman Ozguven

Assistant Professor of FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, affiliate of Institute for Successful Longevity, Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy and Center for Advanced Power Systems, Florida State University

I am an Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Florida A&M University-Florida State University College of Engineering, and a member of Center for Accessibility and Safety for an Aging Population. My general research interests include emergency transportation operations, hurricane resilience, network modeling, transportation accessibility and safety, connected vehicles, intelligent transportation systems, smart cities and urban mobility. The path to resilience is inherently complex and multi-dimensional, and lies at the boundary between various fields of science and engineering. As such, I have established an integrated research and education program that strives to address ever growing mobility, safety, accessibility and resiliency problems in the context of smart infrastructure and cities.

I have been focusing on investigating the relationships among different infrastructure networks in the State of Florida, utilizing my academic research in transportation engineering, and background in industrial engineering and optimization. This investigation focuses on the simultaneous and interdependent movements of people including the vulnerable populations such as aging people, and the commodities and services that meet their needs. During this process, I have established long-lasting multi-disciplinary collaborations with researchers from psychology, sociology, public policy, communications, urban planning, geography, civil, electrical and industrial engineering, and created a research program which draws from various engineering and science methods including optimization, statistical analysis, human factors, machine learning, traffic and transportation engineering and geography.
