Pieter J. FOURIE


Pieter Fourie is a simulation modeller specializing in transportation. Previously he developed integrated transport/land-use models for decision support to South African metropolitan planning authorities at the South African Council of Scientific and industrial Research (CSIR). He is responsible for population synthesis and transport demand assignment for the agent-based transport demand model implemented at the Future Cities Laboratory.


Pieter’s research deals with the generation of more realistic synthetic populations of households and individuals from limited and incomplete information, developing an integrated approach to modelling the coordinated activity scheduling and ride-sharing behaviour within households, and speeding up agent-based transport simulations through meta-modelling techniques.
