Postdoctoral Fellow at ETH Future Cities Laboratory
Dr. Alex Erath is currently a senior researcher at the NRF funded Future Cities Laboratory. As research module coordinator (Deputy PI), he manages the research module on Mobility and Transportation Planning and lead in this role the implementation and further development of the large-scale, agent-based transport demand model MATSim Singapore. He obtained his PhD in 2011 from ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) where he studied the vulnerability of transport infrastructure. His main research interests are multi-agent, activity-based transport demand modeling, the interaction between transport infrastructure and the built environment as well as travel behaviour modeling. In this domain, he was involved various studies with a focus on stated preference surveys and led a project on long-term fuel price elasticity that featured stated adaptation face-to-face interviews.
