Research Interests

Large stations in cities and concerts by famous musicians are always crowded. Moreover, long queues are formed at popular restaurants and attractions in amusement parks. Such congestion and queue do not only give people a lot of stress, but also delay transportation systems and evacuations in emergency situations. Therefore, we develop simple mathematical models that includes essence of crowd dynamics and study how to shorten the evacuation time and waiting time in queueing systems by simulation and theoretical analysis. We also perform experiments by real people in order to verify the effectiveness of the solutions derived from our theory.
