He holds a Ph.D. with examiners’ commendation for outstanding thesis from the University of Wollongong (UOW), Australia with a focus on traveler preference heterogeneity in future transport modeling and planning. At KAPSARC, he is currently leading the modal shift behaviour modeling component of the KAPSARC Spatial Urban Energy System (KSUES) project. Prior to joining KAPSARC, Mehbub worked in Australia at Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW, a state government organisation) as a transport planner and the UOW as a researcher. He led updating the state of transport of TfNSW regions as a part of the 'Future Transport 2056’ which is a 40-year transport vision for NSW. His expertise lies in transport behaviour modeling and urban planning dynamics. Furthermore, he has extensive experience of statistical methods at a high level as well as dedication to playing with comprehensive data. He has also served Khulna University of Bangladesh as a lecturer and was later promoted to a professor in Urban Transport Planning.

He is currently focused on the urban transformation of Riyadh, and Saudi Arabia more generally. He is working toward developing different decision tools to understand the impact of transit oriented development (TOD) on the energy market, and to evaluate and assess urban policies that relate to sutainable transport and energy consumption. Toasin has worked as a scientific researcher at universities and in public organisations, and as a consultant in the private sector. He holds a Ph.D. in transportation planning from Utrecht University, an M.Sc. in urban planning from the London School of Economics, and a master’s and bachelor’s of urban planning from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. While at university, he received several accolades for his work, including the 2014 Ph.D. Dissertation Award in Transportation Geography from the American Association of Geographers (AAG) and the Prime Minister’s Gold Medal for his academic achievements.
