Marianne co-leads the Transportation group within CANUE. The main objective of the transportation group is to generate traffic volumes on road networks for various Canadian cities. The team is using various approaches including travel demand and network assignment models as well as statistical interpolation techniques.
Marianne Hatzopoulou is Associate Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto and Canada Research Chair in Transportation and Air Quality. Her expertise is in modelling road transport emissions and urban air quality, as well as evaluating population exposure to air pollution. Her research aims to capture the interactions between the daily activities and travel patterns of urban dwellers and the generation and dispersion of traffic emissions in urban environments. She has linked various traffic simulation models with tools for microscopic emission estimates and has published in the areas of traffic emission modeling, near-road air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions from transport. Prof. Hatzopoulou serves on the National Academy of Science Transportation Research Board committees on “Transportation and Air Quality” and “Environmental Analysis in Transportation”.
