In my research I develop models and methods for planning and controlling of railway and public transport. The models are used for example as decision support for strategic investments, tactical schedules, and operational planning. Optimization and simulation are typical methodological approaches.
My research is widely funded by the Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket, through the national research program Capacity in the Railway Traffic System (KAJT) and is organized in close cooperation with other KAJT partners, especially Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) and the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). I collaborate internationally via for example Europe’s Rail and International Association of Railway Operations Research (IAROR). I am coordinator for the area Traffic Planning and Control within Trafikverket’s strategic effort for excellence in railway research.
I teach basic traffic planning and advanced planning in railway and public transport. I am examiner for the courses Traffic Infrastructure (TNK061) and Planning of Public Transportation and Railway Traffic (TNK098). I supervise and examine thesis projects on bachelor’s and master’s level.
Personally, I’m a passionate public transport traveller and like to voyage by train, bus, boat, tram, and other means of transport in various countries. Can be found on Twitter as @andpe41.
