Space & Mobility – PLUS
The team Space & Mobility targets the extension of „traditional“ methods and technologies of geoinformatics, like spatial potential analyses, network analyses, spatial statistical methods or overlay techniques, with data-analytical methods of data science for economically and socially relevant questions in an innovative and application-oriented way. A main focus is digitalized and networked mobility in the context of natural environment & health.
Postdoc-Position: Thomas Prinz
Dr. Thoams Prinz is the leader of the team Space & Mobility. As a geographer / geoinformatician at the University of Salzburg he has special access to spatial data bases and spatial analysis methods. His central research focus is the fundamental development of decision-supporting indicators, especially in the areas of mobility and spatial development. In recent years, he has implemented numerous research projects in the Research Studio iSPACE Smart Settlement Systems with public authorities and companies in the context of sustainable mobility, Alpine construction and site development.
Predoc-Position: Maximilian Kiefel (Alm & Gesundheit)
Maximilian Kiefel completed the Master’s degree in Mathematics and has worked alternately in teaching, research, and administration at PLUS. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Data Science with focus on non-parametric inference methods for multivariate observations. He is particularly interested in implementation and application.
Masterstudent: Magdalena Tovilo (Flughafen 4.0)
Magdalena Tovilo completed her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at PLUS in 2021 and has since been studying the masters programme in Data Science. Since March 2023, she has participated in the Airport 4.0 project as a research assistant as part of her master’s thesis.
