Dewan Karim, M.A.Sc., MITE, P.Eng., PTOE

Educated at the University of Tokyo, Japan, Dewan spent more than sixteen years of his career in mobility master planning, smart innovation in urban innovation, shared mobility and transit planning projects in both Japan and Canada. Recently, he developed a new innovative mobility ecosystem master planning concept combining new mobility systems, innovative technologies, equitable use of public space, sustainable safety, and evidence based scientific approach for rebuilding cities for people. The project concept and innovative applications was awarded by MIT Media Lab conference as “best planning system” and ITE Project of year in 2015. Subsequently, he published a chapter of “Disrupting Mobility”, published by Springer University of California, Berkeley and currently writing a book titled “Our Mobility DNA” with Taylor and Francis and teaching professional course to summarize innovative mobility concepts and outcome of urban master planning projects. He is a registered member as a Professional Engineer in Ontario, British Columbia, Nova scotia and certified as a Professional Traffic Operation Engineer.
