Miloš is a PhD student in the Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech, working in the VT-SCORES lab. His focus area is road transportation systems engineering, specializing in traffic signal control and management, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), and infrastructure management systems for ITS. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Traffic and Transportation Engineering at the University of Belgrade in addition to receiving his master’s degree from Virginia Tech in 2011. Although Miloš wants to become a professor of transportation engineering one day, he still plans on maintaining his personal relationship with traffic signal controllers. See all posts by Miloš.
