Prof. Dr. Constantinos Antoniou

Academic Career and Research Areas

The research area of Constantinos Antoniou (b. 1973) is transportation systems engineering. His research focuses primarily on the modelling and simulation of transportation systems, intelligent transport systems (ITS), the calibration and optimization of applications, and the application of behavioral economics in transport, road safety and sustainable transport systems.

Professor Antoniou holds a degree in civil engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in Greece (1995) as well as a master’s degree in transportation (1997) and a PhD in transportation systems (2004) from MIT (USA). He has authored more than 300 scientific publications, including more than 100 papers in international, peer-reviewed journals, 200 published in international conference proceedings, two books and 20 book chapters. He is a member of several scientific organizations and committees, including the Transport Research Board and the Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV). Professor Antoniou sits on the editorial boards of various international journals such as Transportation Research - Part C: Emerging Technologies, Accident Analysis and Prevention and Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems.
