About

Dr. Duives_fotoDorine Duives is an assistant professor at the Department of Transport & Planning at Delft University of Technology. Her research interests lie in the modelling of the dynamics of the active modes of transport and the deduction of travel behaviour by means of field experiments and big data analysis. Her expertise lies in traffic operations and management, especially in the context of the active modes of transportation within urban environments. In her work on the monitoring and management of crowd movements and cyclist traffic she cooperates closely with the planning departments and security organisations of municipalities, large-scale events and transportation hubs.

After obtaining a BSc in Civil Engineering, she completed MSc degree Transport Modelling at Northwestern University – Chicago, USA. Subsequently, she completed a second MSc degree Transport&Planning at the Delft University of Technology, which involved the testing of a new UAV data collection technique at a Dutch music festival. She completed her PhD in 2016, which concerned the analysis and modelling of crowd movement dynamics at large-scale events. Currently, she is the coordinator of the Active Mode Lab, which brings together all researchers at Transport&Planning working on active-mode related topics.

Dorine is committed to the further exploration of both the practical and theoretic sides of the management and operation of active mode infrastructure. The aim is to fuse insights from the contemporary management practice as well as the theoretic traffic flow theory, in order to improve the understanding, the simulation and management of the active modes of traffic.
