About me

I am Andrés Fielbaum, Mathematical Engineer and Ph.D. in Engineering Systems by Universidad de Chile. My main fields of research are public transport, transportation networks, new transportation technologies, and transport-related algorithms. I am currently a postdoc in the Cognitive Robotics Department at TU Delft, analyzing on-demand ridepooling systems.
