DalTRAC would like to acknowledge and congratulate MD Jahedul Alam, a Civil Engineering PhD student and DalTRAC researcher for receiving the Izaak Walton Killam Predoctoral Scholarship. He presented his evacuation research at the Killam Celebration Luncheon, November 19, 2018. MD Jahedul Alam accepted the Killam Predoctoral Scholarship for his research on the “Development of a Mass Evacuation Microsimulation Model for the Halifax Peninsula”. His research focuses on developing an evacuation traffic microsimulation model to understand the intricacies around how to evacuate the Halifax Peninsula due to flood risks during a natural disaster occurrence. He has developed a sequential modeling framework and methods to develop strategies for an efficient evacuation. The research will help emergency planners to better prepare for a mass evacuation.
