Daniel Ayala

I received my PhD from the Computer Science department at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where I was an NSF-IGERT fellow of the Computational Transportation Science program at UIC. I currently work as Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Lewis University.

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

  • Software

  • SFPark Simulation Software: sfparksim.zip:

    The code in this zip file is used for using data from the SFPark database to simulate vehicles that move across an area of San Francisco to search for available parking spots. This simulation system is used for testing possible algorithms that search for parking spaces around Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. If you are interested in more information about the system, you can contact me by email. I can also give you access to the data that was used in our experiments.
