Welcome to Nebiyou Tilahun’s Travel Behavior & Urban Systems Research Group based in the Department of Urban Planning and Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Our group is interested in researching issues surrounding travel behavior, transportation systems, the built environment, and the social and economic outcomes related to transportation.
We released the Metropolitan Chicago Accessibility Explorer in June 2015.
Along with colleagues, we also organized the 2014 NSF sponsored Big Data and Urban Informatics Workshop. The proceedings from this workshop can be accessed here (opens in new window).
We are also currently working on issues at the intersection of social exclusion and transport in collaboration with colleagues at UIC and other institutions. Please browse the site to see what we are working on
