More information


My main interest is in behavioral modeling of travel behavior to generate policy relevant insights. Topics of my research involve modeling multimodal choices and acceptance of new transport technology. I have specialized in developing advanced stated choice experiments, such as context dependent ~, group ~, and HII experiments, which allow studying complex behavior. In addition, I have ample experience with measuring and modeling of attitudes and perceptions and with applying a wide range of multivariate data analysis and discrete modeling techniques.
