Stefanie Peer

Stefanie Peer is associate professor at the Department of Socioeconomics of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). She is head of the research institute “Spatial and real estate economics” at WU. Her research focuses mostly on empirical topics related to transport economics, in particular on behavioral models of travelers’ choice behavior.


Asjad Naqvi

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.


Johannes Müller

Johannes Müller received his diploma degree in Mathematics and Applied Statistics from Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich. His research interest during his time as PhD (2012-2016) at the Bundeswehr University Munich was on the prediction of bookings of free-floating (electric) carsharing systems with case studies in Berlin and Munich. Getting also interested in questions of urban planning, he joined the Big Data Informed Urban Design and Governance team at ETH’s Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore from 2016-2019 as post-doctoral researcher. In the newly developed field of citizen design science, he organized several citizen participation projects and experiments in collaboration with URA Singapore and other non-governmental organizations. Since 2019, he has worked at AIT’s Center for Mobility Systems on the calibration of a MATSim model for Vienna.

Gerald Richter

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

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

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.
