On 29 May 2017 TRAIL PhD Student Yashar Araghi successfully defended his PhD thesis ‘Consumer Heterogeneity, Transport and the Environment’ at Delft University of Technology.

Congratulations Yashar!

Short summary
Environmental policies that require voluntary participation of consumers often fail to make a significant impact. In this thesis different quantitative approaches are used to detect passenger heterogeneity and to argue that designing effective passenger-oriented emission mitigation policies in transport, essentially, requires identifying users’ preferences, attitudes  and motives. By taking into account the heterogeneity of transport users, tailored policies can be develop that are more effective in reducing the environmental impacts of transport.
