Interests & Expertise:
Saving lives, saving time, and providing efficient and sustainable transportation to all road users is my research mission. My name is Xiao (Shaw) Qin and I am an Associate Professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). My primary research concentrations are Highway Safety and Traffic Operations, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Sustainable Transportation Planning, Statistical Modeling and Applications in Transportation, and GIS and Spatial Data Analysis. I am particularly interested in finding technical and engineering solutions to improving traffic safety and mobility for seniors, persons with physical disabilities or other impairments and vulnerable road users including pedestrians and bicyclists.
