Bio

Mark has a Bachelor (Computer Science, Twente University, NL), Master by Research (Computer Science, Twente University, NL) and Doctor of Philosophy (Transport modelling, University of Sydney) degree. He currently works at ITLS in his role as Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Prior to working at Sydney University Mark worked in industry as a software engineer and software architect in transport planning, developing traffic simulation models for large-scale applications in The Netherlands. Due to his industry background, Mark’s research quickly finds its way to practice and many of his academic accomplishments have led to real-world adoption of his methods. He also teaches in various units in the Business Shool such as Strategic Transport Planning, Traffic and Mobility Management, and the Foundation (Transport) unit.

Mark’s research is focussed on the supply side of transport, with a focus on dynamic and static traffic assignment methods, traffic flow theory, and algorithm design, combining mathematically rigorous model formulations with practical applicability. He also has a keen interest in aggregation and decomposition methods in traffic assignment, especially in a multi-scale context. The main aim of this work is to develop transport planning models at various levels of detail for cities, regions and even countries in such a way that consistency is maintained, and model results can be readily adopted by policy makers.
