Proactive decisions for Digital Twin

Dr. John Park received his B.S. degree in Physics and double-majored for B.S. degree and M.S. degree in Urban Planning & Engineering, with a  focus on Transportation Engineering, from Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea. He served as a project manager in a large engineering company (which has now merged with a different firm) for three years, during which he interacted mostly with state agencies, and also worked as a Scientist at at Yonsei University for one year

While pursuing Ph.D. degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Maryland College Park, he worked as an Onsite Consultant with FHWA. Following his graduation, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Massachusetts Amherst for 1 year and later as an Assistant Professor at North Carolina A & T State University for a period of 6 years. 

Now, he is an Associate Professor at Old Dominion University focusing on online Machine Learning via temporal multimodal multivariate learning of extreme uncertainly that exist in various data sources.
