We are pleased to welcome Bijan Vafaei, our newest Design Engineer, to Epsteins Civil Engineering department! At Epstein, Bijan will be serving as a project engineer for Phase I and Phase II projects, designing and delivering roadway design for clients like the Illinois Tollway and the Illinois Department of Transportation.
Before joining us, Bijan worked as a transportation data engineer at Baxter & Woodman, where he worked on various transportation engineering projects, including transportation system management at several intermodal centers, route and price optimizations, and infrastructure improvements. Prior to that, he was a transportation research and data scientist at the Institute for Transportation at Iowa State University.
Bijan graduated from Iowa State University (go Cyclones!) with a degree in civil and transportation engineering. He also holds two minors: one in community and regional planning and the other in logistics, materials and supply chain management.
He says transportation was routed in him from the get-go, having always played with car toys as a child and developing a fascination for ultra-fast cars as he grew older.
Youve come to the right place, Bijan. Once again, welcome to Epstein!
