Oded Cats

Oded Cats is an Associate Professor in the Department of Transport and Planning. His work develops models and methods for multi-modal metropolitan passenger transport systems by combining advancements in behavioural sciences, operations research and complex network theory. His research focuses on system dynamics and uncertainty in route choice and assignment, service optimization, control, network design and robustness, travel information and reliability. He has developed an agent-based dynamic public transport operations and assignment model that has been used in a large range of research projects and real-world applications. Oded is leading several European and national research projects and is a member of several committees of the US Transportation Research Board.

He teaches public transport networks, planning and operations at Bachelor and Master level and organizes an annual course on Planning Public Transport Services aimed at young researchers and professionals. He is a regular speaker at international conferences and has (co-)authored more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers. He currently leads a group of PhD and master students. His research activities support public transport agencies and operators’ decision making and led to field implementations.

Oded holds a dual-PhD from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden and Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
