Dr. O. (Oded) Cats
Oded Cats is Associate Professor of Passenger Transport Systems at Delft University of Technology. His research develops methods and models of multi-modal metropolitan passenger transport systems by combining advancements from behavioural sciences, operations research and complex network theory. His research activities include the deployment of electric and automated vehicles in passenger systems and their integration in the planning and operations of public transport services. His research contributions focus on the development of dynamic transit assignment models, the optimisation of passenger service operations, network robustness analysis and real-time control methods. He is the recipient of a personal European Research Council starting grant devoted to mobility on demand (CriticalMaaS) and is leading several European and national research projects. Dr. Cats co-directs the Smart Public Transport Lab at TU Delft, leading a research group that works closely with public transport authorities and operators.
