Joshua Zev Levin

United States

I hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer and Systems Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

After a career in computer programming, I have decided to also take up solving ground transportation problems by combining existing technologies into a system that can handle most inter-city transportation needs, displacing air, rail, and highway.
