Since 2001, I am working as a senior researcher and project manager
at the Institute of Data Analysis and Process Design (IDP), Zurich University of
Applied Sciences ZHAW. My field of activities includes (1) the analysis, modelling, simulation, and control of transport systems (road, pedestrian, air, and rail traffic; processes in transport facilities), (2) the investigation of technologies and methods for the collection of data from transport systems together with data analysis, and (3) the development of measures to quantify the performance of as well as the accessibility and mobility provided by transport systems.
Besides my research activities I am supervising theses at Bachelor and Master degree level. From 2004 until 2011, I was teaching various courses on modelling and simulation, in particular of transport systems.
As of 2007, I am a member of the executive board of the IDP.
Before joining the University, I was engaged in the industry for
over ten years, conducting various R&D projects focussed on the development
of sensors, control devices and low-power equipment for measurement,
transport, communication, and security systems.
