Stefanie Peer is assistant professor at the Department of Socioeconomics of the Vienna University of Economics and Business since 2014. Her research focuses mostly on empirical topics related to transport economics, in particular on behavioral models of travelers’ choice behavior.
Asjad Naqvi is a post-doctoral researcher at IIASA since January 2017. His research work focuses on agent-based models that link economic, environmental, and financial systems using a multilayer network approach.
Gerald Richter graduated 2003 in technical physics at the University of Technology in Vienna, Austria. In the following years he worked at the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences as a scientific staff member and received his PhD for his work in experimental elementary particle physics in 2009. During his graduate studies Gerald Richter worked as a software developer in increasingly research-related areas. In the course of stays at the European research center CERN and the KEK in Tsukuba, Japan he specialized in computational physics, algorithm development and scientific data mining. After a period as Postdoc at the Institute for Applied Physics of UT Vienna (2010 – 2011) he joined the team of Dynamic Transportation Systems at the AIT Mobility Department in 2012, as a scientist for statistical data analysis in mobility-relevant applications.
Christian Rudloff graduated with a MSc and a PhD in Mathematics from the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK. After working at CACI in London, Christian taught at Carnegie Mellon University and Chatham College in Pittsburgh, USA. After two years at the TU Wien as a researcher in the project “Integrated demand and supply chain management” Christian joined AIT, where he is currently working on the statistical analysis of complex mobility data-sets. During the years 2012 and 2013, Christian spent 4 months at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a visiting scientist to collaborate on a project extracting mobility behaviour from different data sources.
Markus Straub holds a master’s degree in compuer science and is currently working as Research Engineer at the Center for Mobility Systens of the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology. For SimSAEV he focuses on software engineering for the MATSim traffic simulation and GIS (geographic information system) data.
