Daniel Ayala

I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science department at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am also an NSF-IGERT fellow of the Computational Transportation Science program here at UIC.

My research interests lie in mobile data management and applications for improving urban transportation systems. Most of my work right now is concentrated on designing algorithms and applications for improving vehicular parking in urban settings. My advisor is Prof. Ouri Wolfson. I am also co-advised by Prof. Jie Lin (CME) and Prof. Bhaskar DasGupta. Here is a copy of my CV.
