Head of Department at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Transport, Vietnam
Faculty Host: Robert Cervero
Areas of Research: I am spending my time at IURD to look at the nexus of transportation and land use planning. It is understood that urban transportation problems could not be solved if there is no integration policy between land use and transportation development. However, in many cities, particularly in developing countries, this issue is being neglected. I would like to use this visiting opportunity to study experiences in the US and elsewhere and, on that basis, to propose appropriate integration policies between land use and transportation planning for Vietnamese cities.
