Naveen Eluru is a professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering at the University of Central Florida. His research covers the complex interactions of individuals, households, emerging technologies, urban form, environment and transportation system. He employs quantitative analysis approaches drawing on his expertise in econometric modeling, optimization and micro-simulation techniques. The quantitative platforms developed allow us to understand the contribution of transportation systems on our communities’ mobility, energy consumption, resilience and environment holistically.

Eluru’s research has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the Federal Highway Administration, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program, the Florida Department of Transportation, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the Canadian Institute of Health Research, Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies, Disney and Ouranos Inc. The total research funding received as grants and contracts credited to Eluru (and total funding involved) amounts to $4 million ($13 million).

He has published more than 150 journal articles in premier journals such as Accident Analysis and Prevention, Analytic Methods in Accident Research, Energy and Buildings, Environmental Research, Environmental Modelling and Software, Transportation Research Part A, B, C, D, E and F, Transportation, and Transportation Research Record. Eluru’s work has been widely cited. His citation and h-index as of December 2023, based on different sources, are as follows: (a) Scopus 6437 and 42, (b) Web of science 6149 and 43, and (c) Google Scholar 10,500 and 51.
