Dr. Bill Anderson received his doctorate in Geography from Boston University in 1984. From 1983 to 1998 he was a member of the Geography faculty, director of the Institute for Energy Studies and an associate member of the Department of Civil engineering at McMaster University. From 1998 to 2008 he was a professor in the Department of Geography and a lead researcher in the Center for Transportation Studies at Boston University. He arrived at the University of Windsor in July 1, 2008 as Ontario Research Chair in Cross-Border Transportation Policy and founding director of the Cross-Border Institute (CBI). CBI’s research, outreach and educational activities are focused of the movement of goods, people and services across the Canada-US border and other international land borders.

Dr. Anderson’s expertise is in border operations, technology and policy; freight transportation and supply chain; international trade and business; Canada-US economic integration; and regional economic development. At the CBI he leads a multidisciplinary team studying border traffic flows, the economic impact of border infrastructure, big data analysis of Global Positioning System data, cross-border customs and immigration and other topics with the common goal of making borders work better.

Dr. Maoh obtained his PhD in 2005 from McMaster University in the field of land use and transportation modeling. He was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Spatial Analysis of McMaster University from 2005 to 2009. He joined the University of Windsor in 2009 as a faculty member in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He is currently an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering and teaches both undergraduate and graduate transportation courses. He is also the Associate Director of the Cross Border Institute (CBI) and the founder of its Traffic Lab. Dr. Maoh is also the co-founder of the Transportation Systems Innovation (TSI) research Lab at the new Centre for Engineering Innovation at the University of Windsor. In 2014, he established a 5 years Scholarships Program in Transportation Science and Engineering. The program is supported by a grant from the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Foundation and the Esch Foundation to train a total of 25 undergraduate students. It also received support from RC Spencer and Associates to train 5 graduate students.

Over the past fifteen years, Professor Maoh has been involved in several academic research projects to study various transportation problems. He is the author and co-author of numerous peer-reviewed international publications to date. He has been studying the transportation system from a holistic perspective focusing on processes governing the movement of people and goods at various geographical scales. His main research interests include land use modeling, cross-border and freight transportation, network analysis, Big-Data analysis, travel demand analysis, passenger and commercial travel behavior, sustainable cities, development of geospatial planning support system and GIS applications. His research activities have been supported through various agencies including Infrastructure Canada, Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), Automotive Partnership Canada (APC), Canadian Foundation of Innovation (CFI), Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO), Transport Canada, Canadian Border Services Agency, and FedDev Ontario. In 2015, Professor Maoh was the recipient of the Faculty of Engineering Medal of Excellence for best junior engineering research faculty member at the University of Windsor.
