- Professor Traffic Safety
- Delft University of Technology, Netherlands & TØI Institute of Transport Economics Norway
Marjan Hagenzieker is full Professor and chair Traffic Safety at Delft University of Technology since 2014. She has a background in experimental psychology and holds a PhD from Leiden University (NL). Her research focuses on how to ensure road safety in modern urban environments with many kinds of road users and divergent interests. Specific research topics include the behaviour and safety of vulnerable road users (e.g. bicyclists), distraction in traffic, and road user interactions with road infrastructure, in-vehicle technology and automated vehicles.
Recent research projects include ‘Spatial and Transport Impacts of Automated Driving’ (STAD, http://stad.tudelft.nl ), ‘Meaningful Human Control over Automated Driving Systems’ (tudelft.nl/tbm/mhc-ads/), the Norwegian research project ‘Autobus’(toi.no/prosjekt-autobus/category1828.html ), which focuses on the interaction of vulnerable road users with AV shuttles, and the recently awarded project SHAPE-IT: Supporting the Interaction of Humans and Automated Vehicles (shape-it.eu). Since August 2018, she also holds a part-time position at the Norwegian Institute of Transport Economics TØI.
