Introduction
For Eurac and TU Wien I develop European and local projects about sustainable mobility, scientific reports and articles for international journals and presentations for technical conferences. My research focuses on (1) the improvement of passenger transport in rural areas especially across regional/national borders; (2) the development of solutions for a sustainable tourism mobility; (3) the analysis of the implications of innovations as autonomous vehicles on accessibility and transport equity.

Article
Full-text available
Accessibility differences across individuals are a core topic in the transport equity debate. Space-Time Accessibility measures (STAs) have often been used to show such differences, given their sensitiveness to individual spatial and temporal constraints. However, given their complexity, STAs cannot properly isolate the specific role of the transpo...
Article
In contemporary society ICTs play a key role in providing access to work. Nevertheless, work accessibility measurements incorporating ICTs are still limited: the focus lies mostly on the physical (transport-related) component. This study develops an original model that integrates accessibility to work opportunities in the physical, virtual and hybr...

Full-text available
Increasing accessibility and balancing its distribution across space and social groups are two fundamental goals to make transport more sustainable and equitable. In the next decades, autonomous vehicles (AVs) could significantly transform the transport system, influencing accessibility and transport equity. In particular, depending on the assumed...
Article
According to the principles of sustainable mobility, public transport (PT) is becoming a new paradigm to measure the accessibility of a region. This paper analyses PT accessibility for commuters that travel in cross-border areas of Central Europe, a region that has registered a significant growth of transnational movements in the last 20 years. A s...

Article
Accessibility is a valuable indicator for assessing the effectiveness of a transport network. Nevertheless, its analysis can lead to very heterogeneous results depending on the method adopted, thus still struggling to be considered by policy makers and in planning processes. This article contributes to the development of an accessibility analysis a...
Article
Full-text available
The Alpine area is object of a high environmental and social pressure caused by the tourist mobility. The modal share tends towards the private vehicle, since in most cases public transport (PT) is not competitive and does not constitute a valid alternative. This condition is due to several interrelated issues, which include connectivity, multimoda...
Conference Paper
Although Automation is expected to play a crucial role in the future development of transport, currently it lacks strong relations with urban mobility planning. Most types of plans such as SUMPs do not include operative references to Automation, overlooking strategic guidelines or useful measures to integrate this theme into the future vision of mo...
Article
Cross-border commuting is a growing phenomenon both in metropolitan and peripheral areas. Its increase is mostly guaranteed by private vehicles, which cause several negative externalities. Among the European macro-areas of cross-border commuting, Central Europe is characterized by relevant flows, which are originated by EU-13 countries and are head...

Project
Investigating how different AV applications may change the accessibility of rural communities and of different social groups
Project
iMONITRAF! has three main objectives: (1) To act as a political network for mutual exchange and to strengthen the common voice of the Alpine regions; (2) To collect data and depict mobility-related indicators and the effects of future scenarios in traffic development; (3) To develop of a common strategy for the harmonization of existing traffic control measures and for the introduction of a control instrument.
Project
E-Bike aims at increasing the attractiveness of cross-border mountain areas, by several activities, such as: enhancing the natural landscape and cultural heritage through the qualification of the cross-border cycling network, bringing new categories of users closer to the mountains, increasing the number of visitors, encouraging innovation by creating new services. The project wants to propose an integrated and sustainable tourist offer in the area in terms of infrastructure, that implement local enterprise networks. This may reduce the tendency to competition by SMEs (integrated and shared tourism promotion and development through the creation of a cross-border macro cluster). The aim also is to qualify professionals in the tourism sector and to share best practices in the creation of local enterprise networks and standardization of management, implementation and improvement of the cycling network
