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.
