Michael Abraham studied urban and regional planning at TU Berlin and- as a DAAD scholarship holder- studied architecture, geography, and management at Montana State University in the USA. Since 2007, he has been working as a research assistant at TU Berlin and since 2019 at the nexus Institute. Since then, he has been working regularly on several European and international projects to promote sustainable urban mobility. Examples of this include the CIVITAS Plus project MIMOSA, the Horizon 2020 project DORA for the development and testing of a navigation app that spans countries and transport modes, and the recently launched INTERREG project Cities. Multimodal, for example, investigates mobility management measures and mobility points in 10 countries of the Baltic Sea Region. In this field of focus, he is particularly concerned with the process and impact evaluation of the transport measures carried out in these projects. His research interest is focused on the testing and evaluation of sustainable urban transport projects and the development of complex strategies, as well as on the identification of transferability criteria for success factors and the related knowledge exchange at an international level. In addition, he is currently working on general and specific questions concerning the design, implementation, analysis, and evaluation of Smart City concepts.
