Dr. Kazagli joined IIDE in July 2019. She holds a Ph.D in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), a master in Transport Systems from KTH the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and a Diploma in Rural and Surveying Engineering from the National University of Athens (NTUA). Prior to joining IIDE she was a Research Associate at the Department of Mobility and Urban Development of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Berlin. She has been active in the fields of transport modeling, traffic engineering and road design and safety. Her research focuses on the application of mathematical models in the context of urban mobility.
