About the Speaker:

Dr. K.W. Axhausen is Professor of Transport Planning at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich. Before he worked at the Leopold-Franzens Universität, Innsbruck, Imperial College London and the University of Oxford. He has been involved in the measurement and modelling of travel behaviour for the past 35 years contributing especially to the literature on stated preferences, micro-simulation of travel behaviour, accessibility, valuation of travel time and its components, parking behaviour, activity scheduling and travel diary data collection. Current work focuses on the agent-based micro-simulation toolkit MATSim (see www.matsim.org )


This hands-on workshop will explore the different methods to explore transport related decisions using attendant-chosen examples. They could be: mode choice in the presence of new services, shopping location choice, design of mobility hubs, etc. After a brief introduction into the range of approaches, the workshop will focus on the design of possible surveys.
