Short Bio

Mingxin Li is a Scientist in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Delaware. Dr. Li received his B.S. in Rail Operations Management/Logistics from Beijing Jiaotong University in 1996, his M.S. in Civil Engineering with a M.S. Minor in Statistics from Oregon State University in 2007 and his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Utah in 2011. His research interests include transportation operational planning, transit planning and management, traffic operations and analysis. His current research interests focus on application of GPS to travel time and delay measurements; capacities of various freeway work zone lane closure configurations; traffic operational and safety evaluation; multi-modal studies involving interactions between vehicular, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic; intersection and corridor improvement studies; signal phasing and timing optimization studies; micro-simulation modeling, etc.
