Field: Integrated management of transport systems

Main Research: Statistical Modelling

Experience: I work as a scientist at the Austrian institute of Technology (AIT) in Vienna, Austria. I am part of the research group dynamic transportation systems (DTS) in the mobility department. As a mathematician and statistician working in the transport community, my research focuses on the development and calibration of traffic simulation models. Here I concentrate on the statistical analysis of mobility data. My main focus lies in behavioral analysis of mobility decisions via discrete choice modelling, but I am also working on in general traffic modelling, demand modelling, travel times and similar questions. Due to my personal preferences for cycling I am especially interested in studying cycling in urban areas, which includes topics like bike sharing and bike route choice. Furthermore, I help developing and calibrating microscopic simulation models mainly in the areas of pedestrian simulation and shared space simulation. In the autumn of 2012 and again in 2013 I spent time as a visiting researcher with Marta Gonzalez at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. There my research focused on the extraction of mobility behavior from mobile phone data.
