Profile

My research explores the interactions between cities and transport aiming to inform human-centered, environmentally and socially sustainable planning policies. I focus on the influences of the built environment and emerging mobility technologies on human travel and location behaviour. I am also interested in human perceptions and preferences of travel (e.g. travel time, accessibility) and their integration into urban and transport planning. I have a strong interest in developing theory and concepts in those fields and empirically explore them using both quantitative and qualitative methods.

I earned my PhD from the Department of Geography and Regional Planning, School of Surveying Engineering, National Technical University of Athens in 2006. I continued as post-doctoral researcher at NTUA and adjunct Lecturer at the Department of Architecture, University of Patras conducting research and teaching about urban and transport planning integration and cycling mobility. In 2012, I was awarded a two-year Marie Curie International Fellowship to conduct research at University of California, Berkeley (Institute of Urban and Regional Development) and at Delft University of Technology (Transport and Logistics Group). I joined the
Department of Transport and Planning, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Delft University of Technology as Assistant Professor of Smart and Sustainable Transport Systems from 2015 until 2018. Since November 2018, I lead the research group 'Automated driving and new mobility concepts' at the Institute of Transport Research, German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Berlin.
