I am a driven professional seeking to use my knowledge in connectivity, automation, and other emerging technologies to enable Transurban to become the standard bearer among IOOs in delivering a high quality toll service. I strive for all my work to be delivered with honor and excellence. In my 5 years with the FHWA, as both a Technical Manager (2 years) and a Research Fellow (3 years), I have been developing and managing Cooperative Driving Automation (CDA) technologies and high-value projects that will soon be deployed on our nation's roads. In fact, in 2018, it was my platooning algorithm that I developed as part of my doctoral dissertation that was demonstrated on Transurban's I-95 Express Lanes. In addition, I am currently managing multiple CDA projects that are developing technologies and methodologies that have the potential to transform the safety and efficiency of America's transportation network. These include speed harmonization on highways, cooperative perception between infrastructure and vehicles, and various other CDA based Transportation Systems Management & Operations (TSMO) strategies. I also have a plethora of experience in developing a business case for new technology investments and presenting to stakeholders in order to build new partnerships and secure funding for the future. I am confident that my leadership and innovation will help Transurban reach new heights in serving its communities and stakeholders.
