Max T.M. Ng

PhD Candidate, Northwestern University Transportation Center


As a Ph.D. candidate in Transportation Systems Analysis & Planning at Northwestern University, I am passionate about designing and modeling innovative, efficient, and sustainable mobility solutions for passengers and freight. My research interest lies in network design, optimization, and data analytics.

I am also a chartered civil engineer in the United Kingdom with experience in large-scale project management. I represent the Institution of Civil Engineers in the eleven Midwestern states in the United States.

I am currently visiting the Chair of Traffic Engineering and Control of Technical University of Munich.
