ASU Transportation Seminar This Friday!

Arizona State University is hosting Dr. Jimmy Armoogum to discuss Measurement and Analysis of Mobility!

Dr. Jimmy Armoogum is a senior researcher at the Laboratory Economic and Social Dynamics of Transport (DEST) of the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR) and is a visiting TOMNET Senior Scholar for Arizona State University. He will be conducting a transportation seminar on the Measurement and Analysis of Mobility.

The seminar will be hosted at the College Avenue Commons (CAVC) Room 559 on Friday, August 31, 2018 from 2:00 – 3:15 PM. Parking is recommended at the Fulton Center Parking Garage. Light refreshments will be served. The event is open to the public.


Two main directions characterize my research: the first relating to methods and statistical tools, and the second relating to the understanding of behaviors in motorization and mobility of households and individuals. This has led to a demographic approach to motorization and mobility. Although classical quantitative methods of collecting mobility (Household Travel Survey, National Transport Survey) have been proven, change in methodologies are necessary to gain in cost, accuracy, time to get the data, etc. But we need to keep the capacity to measure changes in mobility behavior (using two consecutive surveys). The analyses of mobility are based on a dynamic vision of mobility for the comprehension of the mechanisms, such as breaks of tendency or inflections of the behaviors of mobility. The presentation will shed light on current issues, such as rising/decreasing fuel prices and their impact on disparities and inequalities in mobility.

This seminar is webcast live to a worldwide audience by ASU Engineering – Global Outreach and Extended Education (GOEE). To access the live webcast and archive of previous seminar recordings, please visit:
