Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Loder’s (*1989) field of research is the area of mobility policy with a focus on the analysis, evaluation and optimization of mobility policy measures as well as mobility innovations and interventions. He contributed to developing methods for the macroscopic fundamental diagram and its application to planning and policy, observing the German public transport fare innovations 9-Euro-Ticket and Deutschlandticket using a travel survey, and investigating new policies for road user charges to manage travel demand and traffic.
Prof. Loder studied mechatronics at the Technical University of Hamburg and Energy Science and Technology at ETH Zurich. In 2019, he obtained his Ph.D. in transportation from ETH Zurich. In early 2020, he moved to the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) as a consultant for mobility data and simulations. From 2021 to 2023, he worked as a postdoc at the Chair of Traffic Engineering and Control at TUM. In 2023, Prof. Loder founded a DFG-funded Emmy Noether research group and was appointed to the professorship of Mobility Policy at TUM.
