Road Safety, Statistical Modeling, Road users' Behavior, Surrogate Safety Measure (SSM).

S. M. Sohel Mahmud is employed as an Assistant Professor at the Accident Research Institute (ARI) in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). As an active researcher at ARI since 2005, he has gained wide-ranging experience in education, training, academic and practical research and investigation, as well as in organizing conferences, training, seminars and workshops. Moreover, he has completed several research projects of national and international significance funded by different organizations. Currently, he is actively involved with multinational and national research projects granted by different international donor agencies.

Mr. Mahmud has completed his Ph.D. degree from the University of Queensland, Australia in 2019. As a result of his PhD research, he produced a very significant number of peer-reviewed publications, in the form of 10 journals and 14 international conference papers (further two journals and 1 conference papers are currently in progress). In total,  he has published over 100 journal and conference papers related to his relatively short research career. In addition, he was actively involved with the development of six safe road design and training manuals/guidelines and four book chapters. His research contributions have been focussed on road safety problem, surrogate safety approach, land-use and transport planning, data analysis of transportation systems, including statistical modelling, driving behaviour, as well as micro-level traffic simulation.

In addition, Mr. Mahmud has successfully completed various training programs in different countries under different scholarships, related mainly to advanced data analysis and modelling techniques. As a result, he has gained a very high level of skill and analytical ability on the use of different software packages. In particular, he has become conversant with the data science and analysis of data type. He has also participated in around 50 conferences, seminars, workshops to present his research works in different international and national forums. For further details, see below:
