Personal profile


"Interdependent decision-making is essential, although humans and policies are bounded."

Research profile

Feixiong Liao is an assistant professor at the Urban Planning and Transportation Group of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His fields of expertise include urban planning, traffic and transport studies, mobility behavior, and demand analysis. Feixiong’s current research activities are focused on the development of a large-scale model system of urban transportation planning. He is an expert on the frontier of multi-state supernetwork modeling for interdependent decision problems.

Academic background

He received his doctorate degree (cum laude, less than 5% nationwide) from TU/e in Nov. 2013. During his Ph.D. study, he was the principal researcher in a large consortium to examine how accessibility in large metropolitan areas can be improved by designing land-use transport synchronization strategies. Alongside, he made notable contributions in extending the state-of-the-art of multi-state supernetwork approach.

After completing his Ph.D. study, he initiated international joint research (Dutch-Sino) and became a post-doc researcher at the same group. Through the collaboration, his post-doc research attempted to solve a vital shortcoming of the existing travel demand forecasting systems by coupling activity-based modeling and dynamic traffic assignment in the multi-state supernetworks. He also coordinated a large-scale data collection and analysis of multi-modal travel behavior in Beijing (China) and the Netherlands.

He became an assistant professor at the same group in Feb. 2016 and started teaching courses "Smart Mobility Design" and "Mobility and Logistics". Since 2017, he has been co-promotor and daily supervisor of 3-5 Ph.D. students and post-docs (annually). Being an active researcher, he acts as an ad-hoc reviewer for many scientific journals, peer-reviewed conferences, and funding agencies. He has held visiting scholarships at UMASS (Massachusetts), ETH (Zurich), KIT (Karlsruhe), and Beihang (Beijing). Currently, he is the PI of an international joint research program (EU-Sino) on the valuation and administration of accessibility to housing and transportation.
