Experience:

Christian Stefan studied „Regional Planning and Town Planning” at the Technical University of Vienna. He worked for 9 years as a project leader at the Austrian Road Safety Board (KFV) and specialized in traffic economics, safety of vulnerable road users and black spot management and hazardous road sections.
Starting in 2010, Christian Stefan explored risk models (so called accident prediction models, APM) as means of evaluation in traffic safety and joined AIT’s business unit ‘Transportation Infrastructure Technologies’ to develop several APM’s for Austrian highways agency ASFINAG.
