Dr. David Jonietz

David is leading the Mobility Information Engineering Lab (MIE) since 2016. He is working as a PostDoc researcher at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering at ETH Zürich. He is mainly interested in movement analysis and simulation, with a particular focus on developing computational methods for understanding the involved human-environment-relations.

Methodological focus: Geographical Information Systems (GIS), movement data analysis, geosimulation, agent-based models (ABM), network analysis and routing, Location-based Services (LBS)

Christian Sailer

Christian is a PhD student at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering at ETH Zürich. He is working on the OMLETH project funded by the Innovedum program of ETH, which has the goal of building a learning management system prototype to explore new ways of teaching and learning by location-based mobile learning.

He is mainly interested in mobile human computer interaction methods of learning and teaching across multiple contexts and locations. He focuses in particular on exploring and understanding the key parameters of designing learning modules, in order to enhance the learning progress.

Methodological focus: Geographical Information Systems (GIS),  Educational location-based information and communication technology, visualization and analysis of educational spatio-temporal data

Dominik Bucher

Dominik is a PhD student at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering at ETH Zurich. He is working on the SCCER Mobility project GoEco!, which aims at reducing energy usage of personal transportation by changing mobility behavior towards more sustainable alternatives.

Next to GoEco!, he’s working on other challenges from the transportation domain, such as facilitating multi-modal routing, respecting personal restrictions and preferences, automatic tracking of movement, inference of transport modes and analysis of trajectory data. Further, a big part of his research covers location based search, in particular search for spatio-temporal and volatile information, such as search for a carpooling partner.

Methodological focus: Location-based Services (LBS) and location-based search engines, models and algorithms for spatio-temporal information, routing systems and algorithms, linked and realtime spatio-temporal data, mobility tracking systems and mobile GIS
