I research complex social systems: urban mobility. Congested, urban multimodal networks used by millions of agents to reach their destinations and leaving huge sets of mobility traces ready to be applied for modelling, optimization, understanding and control. Full CV
Currently, I run the ERC Starting Grant COeXISTENCE where I bridge between ML and transportation - we simulate how intelligent machines compete with humans for limited urban resources (space) and what can we expect. See details here I am Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland) with the Group of Machine Learning Research GMUM. I run the NCN Opus Grant on Shared Mobility in the pandemic times, ERC StG and Horizon Europe projects.
Before, I worked (2019-2021) with prof. Oded Cats at TU Delft in his ERC Starting Grant Critical MaaS. I modelled two-sided mobility platforms, specifcally focusing on ride-pooling (ExMAS) and agent-based simulator for Uber-like systems (MaaSSim). I did PhD at Cracow University of Technology with an excellent goup of prof. Andrzej Szarata and working closely with Guido Gentile from La Sapienza on non-equilibrium dynamic traffic assignment. In the interdisciplinary field of urban mobility I did research which can be classified as:
- model estimation, optimization, system control, network design;
- agent-based simulation, game-theory, network science, stochastic simulation, epidemic modelling;
- machine learning, spatial analysis, big data analysis, pattern recognition, unsupervised learning;
- behavioural modelling, economic discrete choice models, policy, sustainability.
I run the seminar on Complex Social Systems (transport is one of them) at Jagiellonian University - materials and papers are on my github

|Such a wonderful evening at #Krakow’s Kazimierz. Not only a Christmas Party, but also the first time when the complete team of #ERC #COeXISTENCE had a chance to meet and integrate with themselves as well as with ‘older’ friends. 👐 Ten brilliant minds, working now at Jagiellonian University to contribute towards future urban mobility. Great pride of you, wish all the best in the coming year!

|🗞 When ride-pooling is attractive/efficient for all the parties involved (passengers, platforms/providers, city/environment/sustainability)? We examined half a year (1.5 million trip sample) from NYC, run 9 000 experiments with our 𝐄𝐱𝐌𝐀𝐒 and report 6 KPIs to move beyond the well-known 𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐦𝐚𝐬𝐬 and better understand ride-pooling potential.

|🛫 On our way to hEART Conference at ETH. This year, our team will present in Zurich: 💣 Farnoud Ghasemi will show how we extend #MaaSSim and simulate Dynamics of the Ride-Sourcing Market: A Coevolutionary Model of Competition between Two-Sided Mobility Platforms - session D6 on Thursday. 💣 Michał Bujak will show how we extend #ExMAS to be able to: Assessing expected ride-pooling performance with non-deterministic, heterogeneous travellers’ behaviour - session E2 on Wednesday. 💣 Arkadiusz Drabicki wraps up his PhD to show his results on Willingness to wait with real-time crowding information in urban public transport – before vs. after COVID-19 pandemic (with Oded Cats ) - session A2 on Wednesday.

|Happy to help the future ERC Grantees with a workshop Akademia ERC. Many excellent future candidates, fingers crossed, I hope I have helped

|Great to kick-off the Horizon Europe SUM project. Unfortunately not in person in Lille, but hopefully soon as well. The consortium and objectives look great!
