      Dr. Weihua Gu joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in October 2013. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2012. He also received his B.S. and M.Eng. degrees in Civil Engineering from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 2002 and 2005; and his M.Sc. (in Industrial Engineering & Operations Research) and M.A. (in Economics) degrees from UC Berkeley in 2010 and 2011.

      Before joining the Department of Electrical Engineering, he was the Deputy Director of the UC Berkeley Center for Future Urban Transport, and also a lecturer at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UC Berkeley. His research interests span over public transportation systems, multimodal urban transportation systems, traffic operations, queueing systems, and infrastructure systems management. He is especially interested in how various transportation modes including cars, buses, rail, and bicycles interact in urban networks, and how to optimally design and manage a multimodal urban transportation system for the benefit of all.

      His awards include a Gordon F. Newell Award for Excellence in Transportation Science and a Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financing Students Abroad.
