Drs. Ing. J. (Johan) Vos
Johan is a parttime-PhD student at Transport and Planning. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Traffic Engineering and a Master’s degree in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning.
At the executive agency of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) he is the editor of the Dutch geometric design guidelines for freeways (ROA).
His PhD research aims to get a better understanding of the relationship between infrastructure and the driver, or in other words the ‘Human Factors’. To be of value to road design guidelines, the insights in Human Factors need to be operationalised, which is the main topic of his research. His research focusses on horizontal curves in freeways and speed-choice of drivers in particular.
