Research Interest

His current research interests include traffic flow theory, traffic control, transport safety, and intelligent transportation systems.

Primary Teaching Area

Dr. Jin’s current research interests include traffic flow theory (focused on advanced car following models, lane-changing models, heterogeneous bicycle traffic, and traffic flow fundamental diagram), traffic operation and control (focused on developing and evaluating operational strategies for optimal control of highway ramp and urban intersection), and transport safety (focused on the assessment and analysis of highway, roundabout, and bicycle lane). The projects is as follows:
1.        Application of Intelligent Urban Traffic Management, Control and Service Technology, funded by Ministry of Science and Technology of China, CNY 700,000, 2014-2016.
2.        Operating Evaluation for Intelligent Traffic Control, funded by Key Science and Technology Innovation Team of Zhejiang Province, CNY 200,000, 2014-2016.
3.        Visual Angle Driving Behavior Model, funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), CNY 250,000, 2013-2015.
4.        Estimation of Travel Time in City Network using Video Data, funded by Zhejiang University, CNY 250,000, 2014-2015.


Dr. Sheng Jin received the Ph.D. degree in Transportation Engineering from Jilin University, Changchun, China, in 2010.

Professional Employment

He was also a visiting academic at NUS (2012.12-2013.3) and Griffith University (2014.8-2015.8). He is currently an assistant professor with the College of Civil Engineering and Architectures, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. His work has appeared in the Transportation Research part A, Transportmetrica, Accident Analysis and Prevention, Transportation Research Record, Physica A, and Physical Letter A, among others. Dr. Jin is an Associate Editor of IEEE ITSC.
