As the founder, Anna is responsible for acquiring, managing and delivering every project in the company. Her focus areas include data analysis, traffic engineering, traffic safety assessment, transportation planning, freeway and arterial traffic operations.
Work Zone Traffic Analysis and Pavement Marking Engineer, MnDOT (2014 – 2016)
Led the production of high quality pavement marking plans and development of traffic simulation models for work zone staging analysis. Anna also served as the technical advisor on several University research projects.
Rotation Engineer Program, MnDOT (2012 – 2014)
During the first two years at MnDOT, Anna joined the Engineering rotation program to gain a broader perspective on transportation industry. She worked on roadway design, utilities, bridge construction, pavement research, and intelligent transportation systems.
Research Associate, Department of Civil Engineering, Cornell University (Jan – May 2012)
Developed a mesoscopic dynamic traffic assignment model using the DynusT modeling framework for the New Orleans metropolitan area. This model was used to test and compare with the Cornell DTA model (developed by Anna as part of her Ph.D. dissertation).
