Scientific challenges for KiM

A main research theme is without question the transition to a sustainable, vital and safe mobility system. The other KiM research themes are directly related to this and thus provide input for the main research theme.

Research to be proud of

For a list of my publications and completed research, I refer to the academic bibliography.

In 2005 in Genoa, Italy, I was awarded the 'Premio delle International Communicazioni Cristoforo Colombo', a prestigious international award for scientific research in the field of maritime economy.

Affinity with KiM core research themes

My contribution shall primary focus on three of KiM's six core research themes: 'Models and data'; 'Social importance, the role of government and market organisation'; and 'Policy evaluations and assessment frameworks'. These research themes are most closely related to the research we conducted at the Department of Transport and Regional Economics (TPR), and at the University of Antwerp's Policy Centre on Commodity Flows (Steunpunt Goederenstromen).

Current position and core scientific research

My research is concentrated on modelling, cost analysis and industrial-economic structures in the port, maritime transport, aviation, and logistics sectors.
