Dr. Bham is a faculty member in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Alaska, Anchorage. He received his MS and PhD degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Bham's areas of research interests are traffic modeling and simulation, traffic operations, driver behavior, infrastructure management, and safety.
Dr. Bham, as a PI, has led several research projects for the Missouri Department of Transportation, and the Smart Work Zone Deployment Initiative pooled fund study administered by the Iowa State University for the Federal Highway Administration. He has also worked on the National Science Foundation's Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) project that incorporated Geographic Information Systems in the civil engineering curriculum. He has worked on research projects for the Illinois Department of Transportation, and the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD). Dr. Bham's research credits total $1.76 million.Dr. Bham has worked as a consultant on several large-scale transportation projects internationally. He designed a 120 km rural highway along the rugged coastal terrain in Pakistan. He has performed feasibility studies and economic analyses for bridges, highways and interchanges for different government agencies including two major interchanges in the city of Karachi, one of the largest cities in the world. He has also completed traffic engineering and planning studies for the National Highway Authority (NHA) of Pakistan.
