Lucas Spierenburg

Lucas is a PhD student at the Smart Public Transport Lab and the City AI lab. He works on income segregation in cities, using data-driven techniques. More specifically, he evaluates how spatial segregation can lead to social segregation, and how the city (urban fabric, transport infrastructure) contains or favors segregation.

He completed his MSc in Energy Management and Sustainability at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) focused on transport and air pollution modeling. He did his Master’s thesis in the Smart Public Transport lab, on the impact of the Noord-Zuidlijn on job accessibility in Amsterdam.

Before starting his PhD, he worked as a research assistant in the Data Analytics and Traffic Simulation lab (DITTlab) on the My-Trac project.
