Maartje De Goede
Dr. Maartje de Goede (1976) is specialised in the subject of human factors and traffic safety. She has a broad experience in leading and executing studies into the behaviour of road-users in relation to vehicles and their traffic environment. Within these projects human factors knowledge is translated into the function of road and vehicle design as well as traffic measurements in terms of perception, comprehensibility and acceptance.
Maartje studied Psychology as well as Cognitive Neuroscience at Utrecht University. In 2009, she obtained her PhD at the Utrecht University department of Psychonomy on the thesis Gender Differences in Spatial Cognition. Maartje participated in several working and consultation groups, both at home and abroad. From 2011 until 2013 she was a member of the PIARC Technical Committee Road Tunnel Operation. She worked as a guest researcher at the Institute of Transport Economics (TØI) in Oslo, Norway in 2014. From 2009 until 2018 she was employed at TNO (The Netherlands Organisation for applied scientific research). Currently she works at the Dutch national institute for road safety research (SWOV), at the department of Human Factors and Vehicle Automation.
