Research

    My research interest lies in travel behaviour modelling for the upcoming era of automated vehicles. Travel behaviour with automated vehicles may be very different from the present: travellers will be able to perform many non-driving activities while on the way and may decide to use their cars as office, recreation place or second home. Given such flexibility, people may decide to travel more and choose further locations for home, work and other activities. In my PhD, I explore these travel and location choices qualitatively (using focus groups) and quantitatively (using stated choice surveys and discrete choice methods). The results will allow to anticipate potential long-term impact of automated vehicles, such as induced travel and urban sprawl, and help policy makers direct the introduction of automated vehicles.
