More Experts


Bhanu Patruni is a senior analyst at RAND Europe. He has substantial experience in the estimation and application of discrete choice models to quantify drivers of travel behaviour and also to obtain future predictions in urban, regional and national contexts. He also has considerable experience in developing complex discrete choice models, including those with distributed parameters and latent variables, and models from stated preference data. His other areas of expertise include applied statistics and data analytics. Patruni holds an M.Tech. in transportation systems engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
