Congestion in urban centres hinders mobility, creating logistical challenges for businesses, governments and people. To create truly sustainable societies, we need to find ways to overcome these mobility obstacles. Dr. Leandro Coelho, Canada Research Chair in Integrated Logistics, believes the solutions involve making better logistics and transportation decisions.
Coelho is developing innovative methods to tackle integrated transportation problems. Going beyond merely using new technologies, he and his research team are also designing methods to exploit technologies to their fullest extent. They are questioning established ideas and proposing new lines of research by integrating modern technologies, breaking the interfaces between interdisciplinary domains, and developing advanced models and solution algorithms for the diverse problems that arise in urban centres.
