This summer, I worked as a research assistant for Professor Vikrant Vaze at Thayer School of Engineering. The team of Professor Vaze mainly focuses on transportation system design and optimization. During this summer, I mainly worked on the feeder line transportation team and relevant case study. A feeder line is a peripheral route or branch in a network, which connects smaller or more remote nodes with a route or branch carrying heavier traffic. That is, using a feeder line to connect people outside of the coverage of the main route to the main route.

My major responsibility is making contributions from economical and analytical perspectives to the feeder line system project to accommodate the project with a solid practical and economic backgrounds. To be more specific, I focused on conducting research on existing modes of feeder lines, building mathematical model for feeder line system that should be feasible in many rural areas, drafting demand analysis, and finished a case study of the feeder line transportation in Lebanon, NH.
