Bottleneck single entryCopyright: FZ Jülich GmbH

Research Interests:

  • Analysis of trajectories and body movement when walking through a bottleneck based on inertial 3D motion capturing and camera data,
  • Difference of movement patterns and trajectories when passing a bottleneck individually or in a crowd,
  • Influence of measurement methods, spatial structures and flow characteristics on the general shape of the fundamental diagram,
  • Comparison of movement patterns and trajectories for differnet cutural backgrounds.

Project related work:

  • Coordinating and technical realisation of field studies and large-scale pedestrian laboratory experiments in the project CroMa (“Crowd Management in Verkehrsinfrastrukturen”).
  • Adaption and developtment of tracking methods in the software PeTrack to incorporate project specific requirements.


  • Since July 2020: doctoral student at IAS-7 as a member of the Division “Pedestrian Empiricism”,
  • Since March 2019: Research assistant at IAS-7 in the project CroMa,
  • 2019: M.Sc. degree in Climate Physics at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel.
