Ali Shamshiripour

Assistant Professor, Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Mechanics

Assistant Director, Center for Applied Transportation Sciences (CATS)

Research Interests:
  • Smart Mobility

  • Human-centric Smart Cities

  • Activity and Travel Behavior Analysis and Analysis

  • Large-scale, Agent-based Simulation of Urban Ecosystems

Welcome to my e-portfolio!

In short,

I am determined to help make future cities better places to live and work, including fostering sustainability, welfare, well-being, etc.


To this end, I combine the following approaches:

  1. Study and model how people behave in various situations

  2. Design innovative transportation solutions 

  3. Develop high-fidelity, agent-based simulations of within-day to long-term urban dynamics to reliably evaluate the range of possible impacts of various interventions (new policies, technologies, etc.).

August     2023

This date marks a significant chapter in my career! I joined the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Arizona (UA) as an Assistant Professor. I also joined the UA's Center for Applied Transportation Sciences (CATS) as an Assistant Director.

December 2023

On this date, my research Lab, the Urban Ecosystems (UE) Lab, kicked off its first research project in collaboration with the Smart Transportation Lab (STL). The project is sponsored by the Pima Association of Governments and I serve as the Co-Principal Investigator.



This was the date of the first session of the first class I teach at the University of Arizona, Transportation Systems.
