Biography

Dr. Gu received his Ph.D. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from University of California, Berkeley in 2012. He also received his B.S. and M.Eng. degrees in Civil Engineering from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 2002 and 2005; and his M.Sc. (in Industrial Engineering & Operations Research) and M.A. (in Economics) degrees from UC Berkeley in 2010 and 2011.


Before joining the Department of Electrical Engineering in 2013, he was the Deputy Director of the UC Berkeley Center for Future Urban Transport, and also a lecturer at the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, UC Berkeley. His research interests span over public transit systems and railway systems, multimodal urban transportation systems, freeway traffic operations, queueing models, and infrastructure management. He is especially interested in how various transportation modes including cars, buses, rail, and bicycles interact in urban networks, and how to optimally design and manage such a multimodal urban transportation system for the benefit of all.


His awards include a Gordon F. Newell Award for Excellence in Transportation Science and a Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financing Students Abroad.
