Melrose Pan

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Meiyu (Melrose) Pan is a transportation researcher and a postdoctoral research associate at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Pan received her B.S. degree in transportation engineering from Tongji University, Shanghai, China. She received an M.S. degree and Ph.D. degree in civil engineering with an emphasis in transportation from the University of Arizona, AZ, USA. 

Dr. Pan's main area of interest is the impact of emerging mobility technologies, infrastructure, and policies on travelers’ behavioral response. She is motivated by a desire to learn more about people and their decision-making processes, which she aims to accomplish through better behavior modeling using data science tools. She hopes that her research will shed light on how policies can improve equity, sustainability, and system efficiency. 

Expertise and Interests:

1. Temporal-spatial analysis of travel behavior 

2. Nudge type interventions to support behavior change 

3. Innovative survey and randomized controlled trial design

4. Traffic simulation and scenario analysis (technology, policy, built environment)
