Professional Interests

Ivan Atanassov received his Master’s Degree in 2015 in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he also received his bachelor’s. His research aligned with his interests which involved 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.

M.S. Thesis:

INFLUENCE OF TRACK ARRANGEMENT ON EXPANDING RAIL CORRIDOR CAPACITY AND OPERATIONS
