Biography

Dr. Shamsunnahar Yasmin is a Research Fellow (Road Safety Engineer) at the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q), Australia. She is a Civil Engineer with ten years of research and project management experience with specialization in Transportation Engineering. She has received her Ph.D. from McGill University, M.Sc. from University of Calgary and B.Sc. from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). She has previously worked as a Research Assistant in Accident Research Institute (ARI) at BUET. Before joining CARRS-Q, she was a Postdoctoral Associate and Graduate Faculty Scholar in University of Central Florida.

      She has extensively worked on evidence-based and data-driven statistical analysis from the perspective of several transportation related issues. Her research expertise encompasses road safety, travel behavior, transportation planning, traffic incident management, traffic engineering, application of social media data in transportation, transit demand, sustainable urban transportation, integrated sociodemographic, built environment and land use modeling. The road safety issues that she have addressed can broadly be categorized as: (1) crash severity analysis, (2) crash frequency analysis, (3) real-time crash risk analysis and (4) road user behavior from safety perspective. In studying crash injury severity and frequency, her research deals directly with several complex methodological issues, such as those relating to population heterogeneity, endogeneity, influence of unobserved factors, data pooling and underreporting; providing new insights and evidence as to how these may be addressed in the safety field. Specifically, she have formulated, estimated and validated applications of advanced econometric models including generalized ordered, mixed/random coefficient, latent segmentation based, copula-based, simultaneous equation, time duration, multi-dimensional choice, grouped-ordered and fractional split models in addressing several empirical issues related to road safety. She has also been involved in several funded projects and have worked with a number of students, researchers and Government officials.
