Doctoral Candidate

Alexander Czeh is a researcher at the Institute for Transport Research of the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) and an expert in sustainable mobility with a specific focus on active mobility, cargo bikes, paratransit, and spatial justice in city and transport planning. He is doing his PhD at the Faculty of Architecture at Technische Universität Braunschweig on the potential of the mobility transition for redesigning urban spaces. Specifically, he investigates whether the areas currently occupied by car infrastructure that will be rendered superfluous by the mobility transition can be reused to gain more living spaces. Alexander Czeh studied at the Technical Universities of Dresden, Delft, and Berlin, and holds an MBA in Sustainable Mobility Management and an MSc in Economics of Transport. He has worked as a scientist, consultant, and GIS analyst in development cooperation as well as in the public and private sector based in Georgia, Germany, Kazakhstan, Laos, Liberia, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, and Vietnam. He is a member of the European Institute for Sustainable Transport and is involved locally in the district representative committee Turmstraße and the association Changing Cities, which strives for a mobility transition in urban and transport planning.

This blog article investigates whether there is a correlation between car ownership and socio-economic situation of the inhabitants in Berlin. For this purpose, the car ownership rate (cars per 100 inhabitants) is compared with the socio-economic status on the level of 436 lebensweltlich orientierten Räumen (LOR).

In an interview with the specialist portal GIS-IQ, Alexander Czeh explains what measures cities took during the Corona crisis to create better conditions for cycling and walking.

Encouraging cycling and walking as means of transport for getting around the city is not only good for the environment and air quality per se, but currently also supports the overall public health goal of minimizing the spread of COVID-19. As each person that cycles or walks instead of using public transit is thereby considerably reducing the risk of infection or of infecting others.
