Biography

Dr. Kevin Gingerich is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering with a focus on transportation studies. Kevin received his PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Windsor, during which time he was awarded an NSERC PGS-D scholarship. His work was conducted for the Cross-Border Institute where he focused on Canada-U.S. trade via truck data processing, analysis, and modelling.

Kevin’s research interests include transportation network modelling, freight transportation, GIS spatial analysis, and discrete choice modelling. He has previously completed projects for organizations such as Transport Canada, MTO, and Union Gas. His research work has been disseminated in widely respected journals including Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies, the Journal of Transport Geography, and Transportation Research Record.

Kevin is eager to teach and work with Lassonde students at an exciting time in the transportation field as it evolves rapidly with emerging technologies, increasing data integration, and shifting cultural trends. This developing landscape provides us with new tools to help understand current trends and plan for a sustainable future.
