Wei-Chieh Huang is an enthusiastic transportation demand modeler and travel behavior researcher. He accomplished his bachelor study in Transportation and Logistics Management at the National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan. Then, he finished his master study in Transportation Systems with distinction at the Technical University of Munich. He also hold two-years practical working expereinces in a demand modeling team at the THI Consultants Inc., Taiwan.

Apart from transportation demand modeling, Wei is especially interested in assessing social impacts and equity issues of transportation policies. He is currently developing this topic for his PhD dissertation and expects to develop an agent-based demand model, which can provide important insights into achieving a more equitable mobility environment and equivelant living conditions in urban and rural areas.
