Dr Andy Chow
Rm 212
Chadwick Building
Gower Street
  • Lecturer in Transport Studies
  • Dept of Civil, Environ &Geomatic Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Andy Chow's research lies in developing tools for analysing and managing dynamic systems. A UCL alumnus (class of 2007), Andy received his undergraduate education in Hong Kong. His doctoral research on optimal control of dynamic transport networks completed at UCL received a Gordon Newell Memorial Dissertation Prize in 2008. In 2007-10, Andy spent three years as a postdoctoral researcher at University of California in the United States where he participated in a number of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) project. Since joining UCL in May 2010, Andy has been associated with Centre for Transport Studies and SpaceTime Lab on various research on transport performance analysis, space-time data mining, and optimal control. Andy is a member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), and Rail Research UK Association (RRUK-A).
