Dr. Meead Saberi received his PhD degree (2013) in Transportation Systems Analysis and Planning from Northwestern University, USA. He also received a Master's degree (2010) in Transportation Engineering from Portland State University, USA and a Bachelor's degree (2008) in Civil Engineering from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran. The focus of his PhD dissertation was on understanding the properties and dynamics of large-scale urban network traffic flow. Viewing urban travel demand from a macroscopic perspective, he demonstrated that urban transportation networks behave similar to many other aggregated dynamical physical systems. In 2013, he was appointed as a "Young Member" of the Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics Committee (AHB45) of the Transportation Research Board of the USA National Academies. In 2014, he joined the Transport group at Monash University. He is leading the City Science Research Group focusing on improving scientific understanding of cities.
