Role: Lead Analyst
While at Steer Davies Gleave, I led the modeling effort of the team estimating potential ridership and revenue for a proposed commuter rail service on the Greensboro–Raleigh–Goldsboro corridor. The modeling effort included aggregating the Triangle Regional Model (Raleigh-Durham area), Piedmont Triad Regional Model (Greensboro area), and Goldsboro Travel Demand Model into a single uniform travel demand model that could be used to examine corridor-wide travel patterns.
In addition to model development, my responsibilities on the project included defining, preparing, and modeling various scenarios as well as processing scenario results. I was also involved in communicating intermediate and final results to the client, communicating with subconsultants, and preparing project deliverables. Following completion of the project, I presented the study’s findings to a number of stakeholder groups in the area at the request of the client.
