Mark McCord received his doctor of philosophy degree in civil engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983, his master of science degree in industrial engineering from Stanford University in 1978, and his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering from Purdue University in 1977. While a doctoral student at MIT, Dr. McCord was a Chateubriand Fellow at Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures in Paris during the 1981–82 academic year.
Shortly after joining the faculty at OSU in 1983, he won the National Science Foundation Presidential Fellowship award. His main areas of expertise include the application of decision analysis and subjective probability theory to the planning and managing of transportation systems. His current research focuses on the use of vehicle location data in public transit operations, the assessment of remote sensing technologies in transportation planning, and regional travel demand measurement and forecasting.
