Delft University of Technology


Dr. ir. Haneen Farah is an Assistant Professor at the Transport and Planning (T&P) department, at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology since July, 2014. Her research focuses on the overlap between road geometric design, road user behaviour and traffic safety, while taking into account the advances in vehicle technology and automation. Her research she combines elements from the transport systems’ analysis, behavioural and human factors sciences, and econometrics.


Before joining TU Delft Haneen worked as a postdoctoral researcher at KTH - Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. She received her PhD in Transportation Engineering from the Technion- Israel Institute of Technology in 2009. She has experience working in several European projects and COST Actions, such as: COOPERS, MULTITUDE, TEMPUS IV HDMCuRF.


Currently at the T&P department she is involved in several national and international projects such as: HFAuto, WEPods, Allegro, STAD, and Taking the Fast Lane.



Her research has been published in well-reputed peer-reviewed international journals in the field, such as Accident Analysis & Prevention, Transportation Research Part B, Part C, and Part F, and presented in leading international conferences.
