UCL , professor of transport studies
Benjamin Heydecker graduated in mathematics at Cambridge University and then earned his PhD in transport studies at UCL. His research lies in developing mathematical and statistical analyses in transport studies to promote modelling, evaluation and design of transport systems using available and emerging technologies. He has pursued this along the three broad themes of traffic management and control, transport planning methods, and transport safety on road and rail. His current research is on applications for cooperation among users, between users and transport systems, and among components of the transport system. His interests include discrete choice and equilibrium modelling, and optimisation methods for the design of transport systems. He serves the editorial boards of several international journals and is a Member of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation, Fellow of the Institution of Mathematics and its Applications, Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, and Fellow of the Transport Research Foundation.
