Areas of expertise: traffic; applying information technology to crash risk, border-crossings, environmental effects, infrastructure and land-use design
Adel Sadek’s research focuses on something that affects nearly everyone: traffic. He takes a holistic approach to the subject, studying everything from air pollution at border crossings to developing smarter traffic signals designed to save time and fuel. He built a computer model that helps transportation planners better manage roadways during inclement weather, such as snowstorms. A native of Egypt, Sadek is a youth leader at St. Mary and St. Moses Coptic Orthodox Church, North Tonawanda, N.Y. He is fluent in Arabic, English, French and Coptic.
