Md Liton Kamruzzaman

Name: Md Liton Kamruzzaman

Title: Associate Professor of Urban Planning

Affiliation: Monash University

Dr Liton Kamruzzaman is an Associate Professor in Urban Planning and Design at Monash University.  He possesses unique skill sets in data analysis and visualisation including transport modelling, statistics, econometrics, GIS and remote sensing.  His research interests span three key areas of urban/transport planning:

  1. effectiveness of strategic urban policies e.g. transit oriented development (TOD), innovation precincts, urban form and structure;
  2. socio-economic and travel behavioural impacts of transport infrastructure e.g. bicycle sharing schemes, light rail, airports;
  3. envisioning the future of cities e.g. smart cities, autonomous vehicles, climate vulnerability such as the urban heat island effect;

Liton has vast experience in teaching transport and land use planning, GIS and remote sensing.

Prior to joining Monash University, Liton taught across three universities: Queensland University of Technology, Australia; University of Ulster, UK and Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh.
