Dissertation Title:

Sustainable Infrastructure Modeling and Policy Analyses: Construction, Energy and Transportation Industries


In this dissertation an interdisciplinary approach is used with the aim of analyzing programs geared at reducing emissions and costs, and determining optimal allocation of resources along with profit maximization by developing and employing optimization, regression and game-theoretic models for the construction, energy and transportation industries. The set of developed models can aid in carbon policy developments and evaluations in these industries. The value added of this research is the development of more accurate feedback for informed decision-making and policy development, focusing on sustainable infrastructure in specific industries. This is done through an efficient formulation of problems by considering industry-specific details that cover engineering, economic and environmental aspects of sustainable practices.
