Jimi Oke, '10, Projects the Future of Sustainable Transportation in Cities

Jimi Oke, class of 2010, is a systems research engineer interested in modeling networks for sustainable infrastructural usage and optimal access. My research thus lies in utilizing optimization, simulation and data mining techniques to solve various problems in transportation, energy and related fields. He is currently doing his postdoctoral fellowship at MIT, researching future mobility Intelligent Transportation Systems lab (sponsored by the MIT Energy Initiative).

Mobility on demand (MOD) is the future for transportation, said Mr. Oke, but autonomous mobility on demand (AMOD) will be particularly useful to cities moving into a greener future.
