Dr. Jin Liu


Dr. Jin Liu is a Research Fellow at the Spatial Modelling and Dynamics (SMaD) group in the Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) at the University of Leeds. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham, where he focused on developing multi-agent applications for next generation railway traffic management system. Prior to joining ITS, he worked as a PDRA at the Future Mobility Research Group at Newcastle University. Dr. Liu's research primarily involves modeling, analysing, and optimising rail traffic for both passenger and freight rail. His expertise includes railway requirement analysis, system verification and validation, and algroithm development of novel AI applications for rail systems.
