About

Professor Carrel is an assistant professor of Smart Urban Systems and a member of Ohio State's Translational Data Analytics Institute. His research is focused on the acquisition and statistical analysis of large-scale data sets from emerging sources for the planning, design, operations, and monitoring of freight, logistics, and passenger transportation systems and infrastructure. His expertise includes the use of automated sensing systems, mobile phones, and cloud-based computational systems to measure and influence consumer choices and optimize levels of service in transportation or supply chain operations.

Research intersts:

  • Understanding the influence of autonomous, shared, and alternative-fuel transportation technologies on travel behavior
  • Incorporating the effect of past experiences and habits into travel behavior and demand models
  • Leveraging new data collection technologies to improve the collection of travel behavior data
  • Understanding and mitigating the effect of unreliability on public transportation passengers and operations
  • Designing new operating models for public transportation, shared mobility systems and freight systems that make use of connected vehicle and automation technologies
  • Understanding the interaction between supply chain management strategies, shopping behavior, and travel demand
  • Acquisition and statistical analysis of large-scale data sets from emerging data sources to understand and influence traveler choices and facilitate the design, operations and monitoring of transportation and logistics systems
