Curriculum Vitae

since 2015


Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering, Technical University of Munich

Rudolf Mößbauer Assistant Professor

At TUM, I lead a research group called Modeling Spatial Mobility. Both travel demand modeling and land use modeling, as well as their tight integration, are covered in our research.

2013 - 2015


National Center for Smart Growth (NCSG), University of Maryland

Faculty Research Associate

At the NCSG I was responsible for improving the Maryland Statewide Transportation Model (MSTM), specifically the implementation of an auto-ownership model, a synthetic population generator and a microscopic module to cover trip generation. Another major project was the implementation of the land use model SILO for Maryland. The model was redesigned to cover location choice at the statewide level. At the same time, SILO was integrated with the travel demand model MSTM to calculate accessibilities, a major driver for household relocation decisions. In 2014 and 2015, I co-tought a class on Research Design for PhD students.

2007 - 2013


Parsons Brinckerhoff, Inc.

Principal Professional Associate

At Parsons Brinckerhoff, I had the chance to work on a large variety of project in travel demand modeling, including - Activity-based models - Freight models - Land use models - Mode choice modeling - Statewide transportation models

2002 - 2006


Institute of Spatial Planning, University of Dortmund, Germany

Research Assistant and Doctoral Student

While conducting the research for my dissertation, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Spatial Planning. My principal research project was the Integrated Land Use Modelling And transportation System Simulation (ILUMASS), the first fully microscopic integrated land-use/transportation model.

1996 - 2002


Department of Spatial Planning, University of Dortmund, Germany

Student, Undergraduate (Vordiplom) and Graduate (Diplom)

During my studies, I worked as a student research assistant at the chair of Sociology for Planners and at the Institute of Spatial Planning. From 2000 to 2001, I spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar at the Department of Urban Design and Planning at University of Washington in Seattle.
