Jesper Provoost

Jesper Provoost (1998) is a PhD student who joined the Smart Public Transport Lab in November 2021. His research in the DIT4TraM project, under supervision of Dr. Oded Cats and Prof. Serge Hoogendoorn, focuses on the application of swarm intelligence techniques for tradable mobility rights and planning of new mobility services. More specifically, he aims to develop and evaluate decentralized demand management schemes in which travelers can trade their rights to travel. Jesper’s interests are located on the intersection between simulation-based optimization, operations research and predictive modeling applied to transportation systems.

He completed his MSc degree in Computer Science (cum laude) at the University of Twente. During his studies, he spent a year to work as a visiting researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Here he worked on predictive real-time repositioning and charging algorithms for ridesharing fleets, which was also the topic of this Master’s thesis. Next to his studies, Jesper has previously worked as a part-time Data Scientist at DAT.mobility and as a Teaching Assistant in Data Visualization at the University of Twente.
