Yueyue Fan is an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. She is also affiliated with the Institute of Transportation Studies and is a faculty member in the Applied Mathematics Graduate Program.
Her research focus is on network optimization, decision making under uncertainty, and transportation and energy infrastructure systems management. Her current research projects include risk management of transportation networks subject to nature hazards and optimal planning and operation of infrastructure systems for alternative energy such as biofuel from biowastes.
Using stochastic and dynamic system modeling and computational methods, her goal is to provide decision support for improving the efficiency, reliability, and sustainability of alternative energy system under the uncertain and evolving environment. She is leading the infrastructure system modeling thread of the Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathway (STEPS) Program on these research efforts.
