Simon, mentored by PhD student Denissa Purba, received the Numbers and Computation section honorable mention during the 2021 Undergraduate Research Symposium for our poster “Charging Station Location Study to Support Electric Vehicle Evacuation Preparedness“!
This year our group mentored two undergraduate researchers who conducted sustainable transport research. Tinghan (Joe) Ye from the department of civil and environmental engineering presented his work during the Undergraduate Research Week on residential electric vehicle charging data analytics and Simon Balisi from the department of industrial engineering modeled chargers deployment for electric vehicle evacuations. Simon was advised by PhD student Denissa Purba through the Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship program of UIUC and Joe was advised by Prof. Kontou and received a research support grant.
Undergraduate Civil and Environmental Engineering student, Joe Ye, is joining our group in Spring 2021. He received a research support grant from the UIUC Office of Undergraduate Research to study transportation and energy systems modeling.
