Vice President of Urban Analytics
Even though he spends his spare time on his feet—walking and playing tennis—mastering New York's famously sticky traffic is Vassilis’ specialty. The transportation operations expert has worked on several projects to improve transportation and traffic flow in the Big Apple, as well as serving an advisory role for traffic projects in San Francisco and for Arizona's highways. Being at the forefront of transportation is one of the Vassilis’ favorite things about his profession—along with the interesting people with whom he gets to work. Metropia's Principal, Vassilis has contributed to numerous technical studies, including analyzing localized operations at work zones, the relationship between traffic operations and land development, multi-modal corridors, and large-scale complex transportation networks. Vassilis received his PhD and his MS in Transportation Planning and Engineering from the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. He also has an MS in Highway and Transportation Engineering from the University of Birmingham and a BS in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens.
