Prof. Benjamin Heydecker

Benjamin Heydecker’s research lies in developing mathematical and statistical analyses in transport studies. He has pursued this along three broad themes within the field of transport studies:

  • Transport safety, including the analysis and interpretation of road accident data
  • Traffic management and control, including real-time information and control systems
  • Transport planning methods, including dynamic transport modelling.
The interrelationships between these themes, and between each of them and methodologies for estimation, design and management are of special interest to him. He is an associate editor of the international journals Transportation Science and Transportation Research (Part B), and also serves on the editorial board of Networks and Spatial Economics and Transportmetrica. He is a fellow of the Institution of Mathematics and its Applications and of the Royal Statistical Society.
