Akhilesh Kumar Maurya is currently Professor in Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati, India. He received his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur and M. Tech. degree in Computer Aided Design from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee. He is active academically and professionally in the area of traffic flow modeling, driver behaviour, road safety audit and accident analysis, traffic data collection and analysis studies since more than one decade. He has published more than 90 technical papers in international journals and conferences. He has received the DAAD fellowship for one month visited at Technische Universität Darmstadt. He is currently President of “Transportation Research Group (TRG)” of India, member of World Conference on Transport Research Society (WCTRS) and the life member of “Indian Roads Congress”. He is also certified “Road safety Auditor” by International Road Federation (India) and Australian Road Research Board. Apart from several Indian Institutions, he has also delivered invited lectures at various International Institutes like Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Darmstadt, University Duisburg-Essen and National University of Singapore.
