Dr. Pei-Fen Kuo is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Geomatics at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan. She is also a Committee Member of the Chinese Society of Criminology. Dr. Kuo received her Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas A&M in 2012. From 2013 to 2014, Dr. Kuo was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Texas A&M Transportation Research Institute and University of Central Florida. She focused on the application of spatial statistics, GIS, and data mining to traffic safety, crime data and policing management. In the last three years, Dr. Kuo was the PI and Co-PI for more than 10 research projects in Taiwan. During her Ph.D, she has participated in several safety-related projects sponsored by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). Dr. Kuo has published 20 journal papers and presented 30 conference papers. Pei-Fen has a Master of Science degree and a Bachelor of Science degree, both in Civil Engineering, from National Taiwan University.
