Menno Yap

Menno Yap (1989) is working as PhD researcher. His research focuses on measuring and modelling reliability of multi-level public transport systems. Especially better understanding and modelling passenger behaviour during disruptions, by inference from big data sources, have his interest.

Besides his PhD research, Menno also works as public transport modeller at Transport for London (TfL). He integrates the perspectives of science and industry. His aim is to bring these worlds closer to each other, by first identifying and understanding problems from practice, and then developing state-of-the-art methods to contribute solving them.

Menno holds his MSc in Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics, and his BSc in Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management (both cum laude). He also has a Minor in Social and Organizational Psychology and a Propedeuse in Medicine.

In his spare time he volunteers as tram driver and advisor of the board of the Public Transport Museum The Hague, the Netherlands.
