Yuan Liao

Doctoral Student at Physical Resource Theory

I am currently a PhD student in data science and transport at Chalmers University of Technology, working on a research program to understand human mobility patterns using social media data. I received my B.E. and M.S. degree in automotive engineering from Tsinghua Univ., Beijing, China, in 2013 and 2016, respectively. I received the Excellent Graduate Student Award and the Excellent Master Thesis Award in July 2016. My research vision is data-driven understanding of humans to empower future intelligent transportation.
