“Hannah, you are a PhD student at SBE and BISS. What are you currently working on?”
“At the moment, I am busy running my first large-scale study where I use a smartphone app to collect GPS data on how citizens of Maastricht move around in our lovely city. I am interested to see at what time of the day people move from one place to another using what mode of transport and what the most popular routes are. I also want to see how certain groups within our society behave differently and what influences their decisions about mobility. This information will later be used by the city of Maastricht to improve the situation for a more flexible and sustainable future in urban mobility.”
