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.Professional interests:
Connected vehicle data analysis, active transportation mobility analysis, transportation statistics, crash data spatial analysis, crash risk assessment, complex GIS analysis (PostGIS, ArcGIS, QGIS, Spark, GeoSpark, R, Python, and PostgreSQL), data visualization, and database management.
