Modelling Individual Mobility Behaviour
From choosing a restaurant for dinner to deciding how to get there, spatial decisions are ubiquitous in human day-to-day lives. Taken together, these choices underlie critical societal phenomena, including the spread of epidemics, the emergence of traffic congestion, and urban segregation. In this talk, Dr. Alessandretti will present recent research that leverages high-resolution large-scale mobility data to understand the mechanisms underlying individual mobility. The talk will touch upon key aspects, such as the interplay between exploration and exploitation, the effect of cognitive constraints, the relation between social and spatial behavior, the effect of spatial scales, and differences across genders and age-groups.
