Eric Miller has been a faculty member in the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Toronto since 1983, where he is currently Professor and Director of the University of Toronto Transportation Research Institute. He also served as Acting Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering during 1998-99, 2003 and 2007 and was the inaugural Director of the University of Toronto Cities Centre (2008-2012). He is also Research Director of the both the Data Management Group (which is responsible for the largest travel survey data collection and management program in Canada) and the Travel Modelling Group (which works closely with regional agencies to improve travel demand modelling in the Toronto region). He was Chair of the U.S. Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Travel Behavior and Values (2009-2015), the International Association for Travel Behaviour Research (2008-09) and the TRB Sub-Committee on Integrated Transportation — Land Use Modeling, and is Member Emeritus of the TRB Transportation Demand Forecasting Committee (2000-09). He served on the TRB Task Force on Moving Activity-Based Approaches to Practice and the US National Academy of Sciences Committee for Determination of the State of the Practice in Metropolitan Area Travel Forecasting. He has chaired or been a member of numerous intercity travel demand modelling peer review panels throughout North America, including current membership on the California High-Speed Rail Authority's Ridership Technical Advisory Panel. Professor Miller is the recipient of the 2009 Wilbur S. Smith Distinguished Educator Award from the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the inaugural winner of the University of British Columbia Margolese National Design for Living Award (2012). Professor Miller is the developer of GTAModel, an advanced regional travel demand modeling system used by the City of Toronto to forecast travel demand in the Greater Toronto-Hamilton Area (GTHA) which operationalizes TASHA, a state-of-the-art agent/activity-based microsimulation model of GTHA travel; and ILUTE, an integrated land use –travel demand model system for the GTHA. He also was Principal Investigator for a major recent study by the Transportation Association of Canada "Changing Practices in Data Collection on the Movement of People". His international experience includes transit planning in Cairo and travel demand model development in Mumbai and Hyderabad. He is co-author of the textbook Urban Transportation Planning: A Decision-Oriented Approach, the third edition of which was recently released in e-book format.
