Bo received her Ph.D. in transportation engineering from Ryerson University (Canada). Her Ph.D. research focus was on exploration of Bayesian method for network screening and before-after safety evaluation of countermeasures. Her Ph.D work also included the comparison of the performance of the EB and FB approaches for network screening and treatment safety evaluation.
