Former Members

Institute for Transport Planning and Systems   (D-BAUG)
Founding Member and Member (2011 - 2016)
Kay Axhausen’s research includes the measurement, modeling and micro-simulation of daily travel behavior, the evaluation of travel time and its components, long-term mobility choices and the response of the land-use system to these choices, all supported by analyses of human activity spaces.

Chair of Computational Social Science   (D-GESS)
Founding Member - Former Member of the Steering Committee (2011 - 2012) and Member (2011 - 2016)
Dirk Helbing investigates complex socio-economic systems, using methods from statistical physics, agent-based modeling, behavioral experiments, and Big Data analytics. His current research studies cascade spreading in complex systems from traffic to finance.

Chair of Computational Physics   (D-BAUG)
Founding Member - Former Member of the Steering Committee (2011 - 2014) and Member (2011 - 2017)
Hans Jürgen Herrmann’s research areas include community structures, the spreading of epidemics or rumors, and the coupling of functional networks such as communication and infrastructure. There, he investigates the dynamics of mutual damage and vulnerability to malicious attacks and random failure.

Prof. Dr. Ryan Murphy
Formerly with Chair of Decision Theory and Behavioral Game Theory   (D-GESS)
Member (2012 - 2015)
At the Risk Center Ryan Murphy’s research focused on human decision making in both risky and strategic contexts combining methods from experimental economics and cognitive psychology.
