Taha Saleem joined HSRC as a research associate in 2017. His research interests lie mainly in the application of state-of-the-art statistical methods in road safety.
Prior to joining HSRC, Taha worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada). His research was on a National Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada-funded project on extracting traffic conflicts from video data and using that as an alternate exposure measure to develop SPFs for intersections. Taha completed his doctorate in civil engineering from Ryerson University in 2016. His PhD dissertation was aimed at advancing the methodology for predicting the safety effects of highway design and operational elements.
Taha’s research has so far culminated in over a dozen peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, in addition to three technical reports. Taha also has a teaching-related experience including a recent appointment as a sessional lecturer at University of Toronto, where he assisted with the course “The Art of Regression Modelling in Road Safety.”
