Alessandro BozzonAlessandro Bozzon

E-mail Alessandro
Supervisor of: Vincent Gong

Assistant Professor with the Web Information Systems group, Department of Software Technology, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at the Delft University of Technology. He is faculty fellow with the IBM Benelux Center of Advanced Studies, and with the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions.

Alessandro’s research lies at the intersection of crowdsourcing, user modeling, and web information retrieval. He studies and builds novel Social Data science methods and tools. His goal is to help improving well-being and fostering inclusion by means of Web-based, personalized social computing systems that combine the cognitive and reasoning abilities of individuals and crowds, with the computational powers of machines, and the value of big amounts of heterogeneous data.

Supervisor of: Lara-Britt Zomer, Danique Ton and Xiaochen Ma

Assistant Professor at the Transport and Planning (T&P) department, Delft University of Technology. His research revolves around the dynamics of multimodal urban transport networks and the impacts of reliability, congestion and information on travellers’ decisions. His research often integrates travel behaviour, traffic simulation modelling and operations research. In addition to his involvement in ALLEGRO, he leads several national and international projects in the department, including TRANS-FORM (Smart transfers through unravelling urban form and travel flow dynamics) and SCRIPTS (Smart cities’ responsive intelligent public transport systems). His research activities often support transport agencies and operators’ decision making.

E-mail Haneen
Supervisor of: Alexandra Gavriilidou

Assistant Professor at the Transport and Planning (T&P) department, at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology. Her research focuses on the overlap between road geometric design, road user behaviour and traffic safety while combining elements from the transport systems’ analysis, behavioural and human factors sciences, and econometrics. Currently at the T&P department she is involved in several national and international projects such as HFAuto (Human Factors of Automated Vehicles), WEPods (Realisation of a pilot with two self-driving vehicles), STAD project (Spatial and Transport Impacts of Automated Driving), and Allegro project (Unravelling slow mode traveling and traffic).

Supervisor of: Marie-Jette Wierbos

Assistant Professor at the Transport and Planning (T&P) department, at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology. His expertise focusses on traffic dynamics. In the ALLEGRO project, he supervises the PhD project on macroscopic modelling of active mode traffic. This means that individual actions are not considered, but average interactions are considered, and the traffic patterns follow from flows and densities. This project will study these patterns, and capture them in models, which in the end can be used to evaluate designs of networks for active modes.
