TRANSP Seminar: Jackeline Rios-Torres, Ph.D. Studying the Potential Impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles

Date: Thursday, September 14

Time: 3:40 pm - 4:55 pm

Location: 109 Estabrook

Jackeline Rios-Torres is a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow in the Energy and Transportation Science Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Her research is primarily focused in the application of optimal control theory to achieve energy efficient vehicle operation with main emphasis in connected and automated vehicles (CAVs). She is also interested in the analysis of the impacts that CAVs can pose on our transportation systems. Dr. Rios-Torres has worked on a number of projects related to connected and automated vehicles, intelligent transportation systems, eco-driving and energy management. A key aspect of Dr. Rios-Torres’ research efforts have been the broad variety of scenarios she has used to analyze and develop strategies to increase the energy efficiency in the transportation sector. Dr. Rios-Torres received her B.S. in electronic engineering from the Universidad del Valle-Colombia, in 2008 and the Ph.D. in Automotive Engineering from Clemson University in 2015. Pizza will be provided!
