Research and teaching focus

My research and teaching focus on the integration of transport and land use planning, on methods for supporting the option-generation phase of the planning process, on concepts for coping with uncertainty in planning, and on ways of enhancing theory-practice interaction. Main publication topics include planning for sustainable accessibility in urban regions, conceptualizing urbanism in the network society, and the application of evolutionary theories to planning.
