Dr Ricardo Silva awarded EPSRC Standard Grant for research on large scale modelling of transport networks

26 February 2016

Dr Ricardo Silva and Dr Soong Kang (UCL School of Management) have been awarded the EPSRC grant  EP/N020723/1, “Nodes from the Underground: Causal and Probabilistic Approaches for Complex Transportation Networks”. This three-year grant will fund a project on developing large-scale models and algorithms for modelling patterns of passenger movement in large urban transport networks, the London Underground being the primary case study. Transport for London will provide data and feedback on the outcomes of the project.
