Carlos F. Daganzo is a Chancellor’s Professor of the Graduate School in civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, and Director of U. C. Berkeley’s Center of Excellence for Future Urban Transport. He is also a co-founder, chairman of the board, and principal scientists of Via Analytics, a California benefit corporation devoted to improving mobility through technology. He has served as Convenor of the oldest international symposium on transportation and traffic theory (the ISTTT) and as an Associate Editor of Transportation Research (Part B, methodological) and Transportation Science. Daganzo's former students hold faculty positions at top ranked schools of engineering, business and management all over the world. He has authored "Fundamentals of Transportation and Traffic Operations" (Pergamon-Elsevier, 1997) – an internationally used and translated graduate level textbook. Noted for his contributions to econometrics, logistics, freight operations, network theory, traffic flow, and transit operations, Daganzo has also sole-authored four research books: "Multinomial Probit: The Theory and its Application to Demand Forecasting" (Academic Press, 1979), "Logistics Systems Analysis" (1st, 2nd and 3rd and 4th eds, Springer, 1991, 1996, 1999, 2005), “A Theory of Supply Chains” (Springer, 2003) and “Public Transportation Systems: Basic Principles of System Design, Operations Planning and Traffic Control” (published online, 2010). The latter contains the blueprint for Barcelona’s new high-performance bus system, which Daganzo co-designed. The Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, bestowed on him an honorary doctorate, partly in recognition for this work. The ISTTT Symposium of 2011 was dedicated to him in recognition of his cumulative contributions to transportation science.
