研究方向与社会贡献  (Research direction and social contribution)

严翔博士的研究专注在使用数据科学和人工智能(包括机器学习)来提升交通系统的公平性和可持续性。他致力于从交通工程、数据科学、和城市规划等多学科交叉的视角将把交通科技创新应用到解决社区需求上。他同时与公共部门和企业合作开发智能决策系统来帮助城市规划和管理包括共享自行车和滑板车等新型交通模式。严博士的研究得到了美国交通部、福特基金会、自然灾害中心、密西根大学贫困研究中心等资助机构的支持。他的学术成果发表在包括《Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice》, 《Transportation Research Part C: Emergency Technologies》, and 《Journal of the American Planning Association》在内的交通和城市规划领域国家顶级期刊。

Dr. Xiang Yan focuses on using data science and artificial intelligence (machine learning) to make transportation more equitable and sustainable. Bridging transportation engineering, data science, and urban planning, he takes an interdisciplinary approach to transportation research that connects technological innovations with community needs. He works closely with public agencies and industry partners to develop intelligent decision-support tools that can help them better plan for and manage new mobility systems such as shared e-scooters. His research has been supported by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Ford Motor Company, Natural Hazards Center, and Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan. His work has been published in top transportation and planning journals such as Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Transportation Research Part C: Emergency Technologies, and Journal of the American Planning Association.
