Menendez, Monica, Dr.
Dr. Mónica Menéndez joined the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich as the Director of the Research Group “Traffic Engineering” in October 2010. Prior to that, she was a Management Consultant at Bain & Company's San Francisco office. She joined Bain after receiving a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 2006. During her studies at UC Berkeley she received, among other awards, an “NSF Fellowship” in 2002, the “Gordon F. Newell Award” in 2006, and the “Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award” in 2006. Dr. Menendez also holds a dual degree in Civil Engineering and Architectural Engineering from the University of Miami, from where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2002. Her research interests include traffic flow theory and operations, sustainable transportation, and logistics.
