Stephanie Schasché is a junior researcher at the department for Operations, Energy and Environmental Management of the University of Klagenfurt. She is part of the interdisciplinary Project MobiCar, where she contributes with her expertise as business all-rounder with focus on environmental management, sustainable mobility and customers
Stephanie has a Master’s degree in Applied Business Administration and is currently a PhD student in Social Sciences and Economics at the University of Klagenfurt. Her PhD research focuses on “Demand-responsive transport services in rural areas”.
The project focuses on integrating rural areas with existing public transport networks in Carinthia. To this end the University of Klagenfurt, Department of Mathematics, and the Lakeside Labs GmbH develop planning and optimization methods for integrating demand-responsive transport services with the existing public transport network. For testing robustness in the face of unexpected deviations, such as traffic disruptions, as well as potential reduction of carbon emissions, the algorithms developed are subjected to agent-based simulations.
This algorithmic work is accompanied by empirical studies, conducted by the Department of Operations, Energy and Environmental Management of the University of Klagenfurt in order to gain a deeper understanding of the travel habits of the population of rural communities in Carinthia. These studies are complemented with a Stated Choice experiment in order to gain insights into the “user acceptance” – how a rural population relates to public transport solutions.
