Biography: Michael has experience in conducting multimodal transportation planning- and safety-related studies in both urban and rural contexts. His work has focused on providing communities and local, state, and federal transportation agencies with data-driven results that are informative and implementable.
Mr. Martin's work is centered around applying spatial analysis techniques to transportation safety and planning problems to produce practical results that help save lives, time, and resources. He regularly works with transportation safety experts to analyze crash data and produce geographic information system (GIS) tools that integrate disparate, yet complementary, data sets that allow users to locate areas of interest and succinctly illustrate the issues on the ground. He also reviews and analyzes household, work place, and commercial vehicle travel survey data for the metropolitan planning organizations in Texas to provide quality assurance and control to so that the best information is forwarded to transportation modelers, urban planners, and policy makers.
