Daniel Vignon ,

  • Assistant Professor



Dr. Vignon's research seeks to inform the design, regulation and operation of emerging mobility services and of smart infrastructure systems. Drawing from his background in both engineering and economics, he models and analyzes the interactions of these systems with different markets, studies their performance and their impact on social welfare, and designs policies to optimally and parsimoniously regulate them.

Research Interests: Transportation economics, urban and emerging transportation systems, operations research, smart infrastructure systems
