A. (Alexandra) Gavriilidou


Alexandra studied Mechanical Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), where she obtained a Diplom-Ingenieur in July 2014. Then, she moved to the Netherlands to follow the M.Sc. in Civil Engineering Transport&Planning Track of the Delft University of Technology. She graduated in August 2016 on the topic of “Real-time transfer synchronisation for public transport services using passenger data”. Since October 2016, she is a PhD candidate in the ALLEGRO project, researching the microscopic behaviour of cyclists.


Understanding and modelling individual cycling behaviour, i.e. how they interact with other traffic participants and with the infrastructure.
This research aims to set up the behavioural theory and develop mathematical models for cycling in an urban environment. Data collection and analysis will be used to underpin the theories and calibrate the models, which are going to be used for behavioural analyses.

Research Themes:

  • My PhD Project
    Theory and microscopic modelling of active traffic behaviour

    Unravelling the active mode traveling and traffic: with innovative data to a new transportation and traffic theory for pedestrians and bicycles.
