Dr Chaitrali Shirke
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
BiographyMiss Chaitrali Shirke completed her PhD at QUT in the area of transportation engineering. She has also worked as a traffic engineer and research assistant in the past. Her research interests include transport modelling and planning, traffic flow theory, traffic simulation, urban traffic management, performance assessment of transport network, customers' experience, and transit-oriented development. She has a good experience in working with traffic management systems especially urban traffic management. She can efficiently work with the latest modelling software/tools such as Aimsun, SIDRA, STREAMS etc. She also has a working knowledge of Australian standards and guides for traffic management.
