Professional Interests

Chen-Yu Lin is currently a graduate research assistant pursuing his Ph.D degree with RailTEC at University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign (UIUC). His research focuses on the safety and risk analyses on the passenger and freight shared-use rail corridors. Major research topics include, but not limited to: causal train accident analyses, adjacent track accident risk assessment, and high-speed rail safety. Mr. Lin is also interested in high-speed rail systems in general. Mr. Lin has developed a great interest in railroad and has been active in the American Railroad Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) Student Chapter since his arrival in UIUC and served as the Engineering Council Representative for the 2014 calendar year.
