Dr.ir. M. (Maarten) Kroesen

Profile

Maarten Kroesen is an assistant professor in the group Transport and Logistics of the department of Transport Policy and Management.

His Ph.D. research focused on understanding and explaining human response to aircraft noise. His contribution to this field lied in the translation of several sociological and psychological theories of noise reaction to advanced and testable statistical models.

After his Ph.D. he made the substantive shift to the field of travel behavior. He currently works on models to reveal mobility patterns and transitions between these patterns (using latent class transition/Markov models). 

Research

My main contribution to the field of travel behaviour has been to push methods for the analysis of mobility panel data (e.g. cross-lagged panel models and latent transition/Markov models). Mobility panel data are increasingly becoming available and can provide us with important behavioural insights, which, in turn, allow us to develop effective transport policies to support the shift towards the use of more sustainable transport modes.
