Research Interests

Research Interests
Dr. Hyun is currently conducting research on the topics of equity in transportation and community resiliency using neighborhood data and large-sized vehicle trajectories and pedestrian and bikers travel behavior. The USDOT, North Central Texas Council of Governments, and the City of Arlington support her current research. She has closely worked with California DOT and Environmental Protection Agencies over six years, conducted multiple research on traffic safety and operation by utilizing existing traffic detection systems. She has a unique expertise on sensor data analysis using machine-learning techniques and big data analysis including GIS and Database. Much of her previous research focuses on applied research topics and is published in Transportation Research Board (TRB) publications and peer-reviewed journal papers.
