Ivan Atanassov is a graduate research assistant at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Rail Transportation and Engineering Center (RailTEC), and is currently pursuing his master's in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, where he also received his bachelor's. His current research aligns with his interests, and involves a systems and capacity approach to railway engineering that investigates the relationships in track infrastructure layout and the operational benefits in the transition from single to double track mainlines. Ivan hopes to one day become involved in the planning and operational aspects of passenger railway systems in urban environments.
