Dr Leorey Marquez

Senior Research Scientist, Digital Productivity

Contact details:



Dr. Leorey Marquez is a Senior Research Scientist with the Digital Productivity Flagship at CSIRO, Australia’s federal research agency.  He has specialist expertise in mathematical modelling and land-use transport environment modelling and has developed numbers of software packages for such analysis, for example TOPAZ2000, LAIRDW  and STEAM (Spatial and Transport Emissions Assessment Module). Prior to joining the CSIRO in 1993, he lectured at the Department of Decision Sciences at the University of Hawaii for 6 years.  He received degrees in Statistics and Operations Research from the University of the Philippines and a Ph.D. in Communications and Information Science from the University of Hawaii. His areas of research include land use-transport-environment modelling, network optimisation, expert systems, and object-oriented analysis and design. He was responsible for modelling traffic congestion and population exposure to pollution in the BTRE-commissioned Study on GHG Abatement Measures for Urban Freight and also in the 1997 National Inquiry in Urban Air Quality. In 2015, Dr. Marquez was awarded a Balik-Scientist Grant to teach Simulation Modeling for Disaster Planning at the University of the Philippines College of Engineering.
