- Research Interest:
Professor Koppelman's research interests are in the development and application of advanced logit models to the study of urban and intercity travel demand. His current research includes development and refinement of activity based travel models, models of intercity passenger travel behavior and models of air traveler preferences for carriers, schedule and classes.
