I focus on IT-enabled Mobility services such as smart parking, connected vehicles, bike sharing, car sharing and person-2-person car sharing.

ROBERT HAMPSHIRE - Assistant Professor, John H. Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management, Carnegie Mellon University

Robert Hampshire received his Ph.D. from the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton University in March 2007. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the John H. Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management, Carnegie Mellon University. His research focus is urban transportation systems. He is immersed in innovative ways to reduce urban congestion and reduce air pollution.

In particular, Prof. Hampshire focuses on IT enabled Mobility services, communication services and distributed web services. He uses both non steady state stochastic modeling and dynamic optimization to develop management strategies. His industry experience includes work at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Bell Laboratories of Lucent Technologies, Compaq Computers and VLSI Technology. He has patents in the areas of IT asset portfolio management and supply chain risk management.

As an MLK Visiting Assistant Professor he worked closely with Prof. Richard C. Larson in the Engineering Systems Division (ESD) as a lecturer and collaborated on research papers.
