Dr.ir. D. (Danique) Ton
Danique is a Postdoc researcher in the active mode lab and smart public transport lab at TU Delft. Her work revolves around travel behaviour of sustainable modes (e.g. walking, cycling, and public transport). Next to her work at TU Delft, she works as a part time researcher at the Dutch Railways (NS), where she focuses on access and egress (or first/last mile) of stations.
Danique holds a PhD from TU Delft on mode and route choice behaviour of active mode users. During her PhD she investigated who uses active modes, what drives them to do that, how can active modes be added to the choice set, and if you would cycle how do you choose your route. Before joining TU Delft, she worked as a researcher at the Dutch Railways (NS), where she focused on walking activities and movements in the station environment. She holds a MSc in Civil Engineering.
The research of Danique focuses on understanding and modelling travel behaviour of individuals, with a specific focus on active modes, e.g. walking and cycling, alone or in combination with public transport. Both methodology, such as discrete choice modelling, and empirical applications are at the core of her research.
