María J. Alonso González

Maria is a PhD researcher in the Smart Public Transport Lab of TU Delft. Her PhD project involves the forecast and evaluation of new mobility services. In particular, she focuses on (sub)urban Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) (which includes both shared ride-hailing and microtransit). In her research, she takes the passenger perspective and analyses the usage of these services in relation to scheduled public transport, as well as the expected usage in an integrated network. Her research interests also include Mobility as a Service (MaaS), as full integration of the existing mobility services.

Maria has a Master’s level Double Degree in Civil Engineering from the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM), with special focus on transportation. Previous to joining TU Delft, she worked internationally in the transportation construction sector.
