»Based on a construction and development background, my research focuses on understanding sustainable development of urban and regional communities. I look at the issue from an interdisciplinary perspective, taking into account the social, economic and environmental dimensions, with the aim of contributing to improving the quality of life of people in cities and at the regional level. My main focus is sustainable urban mobility, with a particular interest in understanding the holistic integration and functioning of novel mobility services, taking into account smart and sustainable approaches. My research approach includes a systematic combination of qualitative and quantitative research methods for the assessment, analysis and modelling of livable urban communities, taking into account the holistic spatial planning context.«

Around the globe, the growth of cities and urban communities is highly dependent on the state of mobility services and infrastructures. These services and infrastructures play a prominent role also in the development of other key sectors and activities in cities beyond mere transportation. With a well-connected mobility system, people can participate seamlessly, freely and on time in their daily activities, such as accessing their workplaces, schools, markets, shopping centres, leisure facilities, etc. Therefore, the provision of a well connected and seamless mobility network in cities should not only be seen as an option, but rather as a driver for all other daily activities which are important for achieving a good and improved quality of life in urban communities.
My research is helping to move towards a sustainable transport infrastructure. I am mainly concerned with modelling possible future integrated mobility systems, using a mixed-method approach. My research thus combines statistical and qualitative methods, leading to a comprehensive understanding of the mobility system.
