PhD-thesis: Advancing transport models using Agent-Based Modelling and GIS

Dana Kaziyeva holds a Bachelor’s degree in Ecology from L.N.Gumilyov Eurasian National University and a Master’s degree in Applied Geoinformatics from University of Salzburg. In her master thesis, she evaluated distribution of theoretical potential of renewable energy using spatial analysis.

Nowadays she is a member of the following research groups at Z_GIS, University of Salzburg. At the GI Mobility Lab she participated in the projects FamoS and Bicycle Observatory, where she worked on modelling bicycle traffic flows and mobility-related data analysis. At the Spatial Simulation Lab she is involved in tutoring at Spatial Simulation winter school.

The focus of her PhD is development of simulation models of human mobility that can benefit mainly urban planning as well as other domains where transportation exists as part of a system. She tries to explore advantages of agent-based modelling approach in transportation modelling and find ways to implement behavioural characteristics of mobility in a simulation environment.
