Moeid Qurashi

Research Associate

Moeid holds a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from the National University of Science and Technology, Islamabad, Pakistan, and a master's degree in Transportation Systems from the Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany. His research focuses on transport modeling and simulation, particularly on dynamic demand estimation and modeling of dynamic ride-sharing systems. While working in the chair of Transportation System Engineering, he has worked for the project 'D-vanpool' focusing on operational modeling and impact assessment of dynamic vanpooling services.


Moeid has authored publications in many notable peer reviewed journals:
