"Economic evaluation of travel time variability"
/ Professor Mogens FOSGERAU (Technical University of Denmark)

[Note] Dr. Mogens Fosgerau is a professor of economics at Department for Transport, Technical University of Denmark. His areas of research include micro-economics and micro-econometrics applied to problems in transportation, in particular to issues concerning time, reliability and congestion. He has contributed to the econometrics of discrete choice emphasising the problem of recovering the distribution of latent variables such as the value of travel time from observed choices. He has also worked on the value of reliability, providing a foundation for this concept in scheduling preferences. His most recent research area is policies to regulate urban congestion during demand peaks. He is a founding editor of Economics of Transportation.
