  • Foto carnet MarcelMarcel Sala. Lane changing on freeways: modeling and management strategies. Ph.D. Program in Civil Engineering. BarcelonaTech. Expected end date: 2017. Bio: Marcel obtained his MEng degree in Civil Engineering from UPC–BarcelonaTECH in 2014, just after the completion of his Master thesis entitled “Freeway Traffic Experiment – Empirical Traffic Data Under Dynamic Speed Limit Strategies” which lead to one publication in the Procedia series. Short thereafter he joined the Center for Innovation in Transport (CENIT) as a researcher, where is pursuing his PhD. He is an expert in Matlab programming and currently he is developing a traffic data validation software package.
  • Margarita Martínez. Data fusion for the improvement of freeway OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAinformation systems. Ph.D. Program in Civil Engineering. Universidade da Coruña. Codirected with Prof. Ignacio Pérez. Expected end date: 2016. Bio: After finishing her Civil Engineering degree at the University of A Coruña (UDC), Margarita started working on road design, construction and urbanization. After 7 years, she decided to focus her activity on the university, where she currently combines teaching and research. One of her works has already been published on Transportation Research Part B: Methodological (TR-B). She regularly visits the Fachhochschule Magdeburg-Stendal in Magdeburg (Germany).
