PhD Defence Alexandra Gavriilidou
Wednesday the 3rd of February Alexandra Gavriilidou will defend her thesis entitled ‘Cyclists in Motion: from data collection to behavioural models.’
The defence ceremony will take place in the Senaatszaal of the TU Delft Aula. Prior to the defence, at 14:30, Alexandra will give a brief presentation about her research.
You are cordially invited to attend the ceremony using a live-stream, as given the latest measures, no audience is allowed in the room.

In this dissertation, a modelling framework is developed to capture operational cycling behaviour, i.e. decisions and movements cyclists make while cycling and interacting with other cyclists and with the infrastructure. Moreover, a large-scale data collection is performed to obtain cyclist trajectories in different types of interactions. Based on the developed framework and collected trajectories, discrete choice models are estimated. These reveal valuable behavioural insights used to make recommendations for the design of cycling infrastructure.
