Curriculum Vitae


Biography

Nezamuddin received a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (Transportation) from The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) in 2011, and an M.S and a B. Tech in the same discipline from the University of Central Florida and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, respectively. He was awarded numerous scholarships throughout his studies, including the prestigious Dwight D. Eisenhower Graduate Fellowship from the Federal Highway Administration and Mary Kate Collins Memorial Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Civil Engineering at UT Austin. After obtaining Ph.D., Nezamuddin worked at the Center for Transportation Research at UT Austin applying dynamic multimodal transportation network modeling to solve transportation planning, traffic operations, and work zone problems for several Central Texas transportation agencies. Nezamuddin joined the faculty at Valparaiso University in the fall of 2013.  He is currently an assistant professor of Civil Engineering.
