D, Civil Engineering, University of Colorado, Denver, CO, Ph.D. Dissertation: Sustainable Urban Development; GPA: 3.90 Master of Science, Civil Engineering, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY Thesis: Actuated Signalized Systems, Delay and Signal Performance Analysis; GPA: 3.8 Bachelor of Science, Civil Engineering, Osmania University, Hyderabad, India Thesis: Noise pollution due to high air traffic volume, GPA: 3.75 (Graduated in top 5 percent of class) Research

GIS Analysis Developed personal geodatabase. Developed Land Use change model using Model Builder and Python in Arc9. x. 1.1.2.

Transportation Systems Analysis Developed a traffic model to create speed maps for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). Developed a Real time traffic speed model in ArcGIS using ArcObjects. Analytical and Innovative Problem Solving The algorithm developed for the speed map project utilizes Geographic Positioning System (GPS) data obtained from probes on public transit vehicles to predict operating speeds on freeways.

Statistical testing and analysis Analysis of traffic operations of urban and rural freeways and application of GIS were critical elements of this project.

Proposed “point processes” based algorithm to CDOT for estimating travel time on Interstate 70 using GPS data. Provided technical assistance in “Driver Behavior” analysis, prepared for National Science Foundation. Identified exogenous and endogenous variables to build a statistical travel analysis model.
