Current Research

My current NSF-funded research continues my long standing interest in hub location problems. The new ideas reflect a blend of optimization with an analysis of environmental impacts of hub and gateway systems: a consequence of high levels of global interaction. Thanks to collaborations with former graduate students, I have also developed a strong interest in commuting. Finally, as an indication of my diverse interests, I have worked on a series of papers with an historical view of US transport and development.
