Marek Giergiczny, Assistant professor, Department of Economic Sciences, University of Warsaw. External Tests of Scope in Choice Experiments. 22 March 2018, 11:00 to 12:00. Business School Maurice Keyworth SR (1.06), University of Leeds. Abstract: Despite the growing popularity of Choice Experiments (CE), the number of studies which tested CE reliability is very limited. This is an important…

Using Discrete Choice Experiments to assess early Consumer Response to Vehicle Automation. 22 February 2018, 11:00 to 12:00. University of Leeds, Liberty Building, room 1.12. Abstract: Autonomous vehicles use sensing and communication technologies to navigate safely and efficiently with little or no input from the…
Dr. Erlend Dancke Sandorf, Research Fellow at the Centre for Environmental and Resource Economics, Umeå, Sweden. Assessing the impact of “professional” respondents using an Integrated Choice and Latent Variable model. 8 February 2017, 11:00 to 12:00. University of Leeds, Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) Room 1.11. Abstract: Online panels are increasingly used for stated preference research,…
Dr. Chiara Calastri Differently from many other countries, a PhD in the UK does not involve a public defence. For this reason, we decided to start a new series of seminars for CMC students, hoping that other research groups will find this interesting and hopefully adopt the idea for their students as well. Shortly after the Viva, we will organise an…
Matthew Quaife Sex, risk, and preferences: Using stated preference data to model behaviour in HIV prevention Thursday, 9th November, 11:00-12:00 University of Leeds, Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) Room 1.11 Abstract: Evidence suggests that economic factors play an important role in commercial sex work, in particular we see that condomless sex commands a price premium…

Providing personalised feedback to investigate the role of social influence on travel behaviour Thursday, 2nd November, 11:00-12:00 University of Leeds, Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) Room 1.11 Abstract: Providing feedback to travellers about their travel behaviour is a popular method to encourage active travel and reduce the use of car. Most…
Dr. Lissy La Paix Puello Measurement of non-random attrition effects on mobility rates using trip diaries data Thursday, 19th October, 11:00-12:00 Business School Maurice Keyworth SR (1.06), Maurice Keyworth Building, University of Leeds, Moorland Rd, Leeds LS6 1AN Abstract: This paper examines the influence of panel attrition on the intrapersonal dynamics in self-reported trip rates, using…
Prof. Sergio R. Jara-Diaz Time use models and the values of work, leisure and travel: a personal research perspective Tuesday, 18th July, 11:00-12:00 Abstract: Departing from Becker (1965), DeSerpa (1972), Evans (1972), Train and McFadden (1978) and others, the evolution of a series of microeconomic models of time use is presented. The kernel idea was…
Felipe González Identifiability of discrete choice models considering heterogeneous heuristics Wednesday, 28th June Abstract: Random utility maximization -RUM- (McFadden, 1973) is established as the most popular theory of discrete choice, having as the most iconic models the multinomial logit, hierarchical logit, and mixed logit models. Because these models are based on an additive measure of…
Dr. Alexander Erath Principal Investigator of Engaging Mobility & Co-PI of Cognition, Perception, and Behaviour in Urban Environments Bike to the future: using Virtual Reality to study mobility behaviour Tuesday 9 May 2017 Abstract: The opening of new infrastructure can open windows of opportunity for longitudinal studies to assess impact of built environment on mode choice….
