Cities around the world constitute complex systems, as sets of sub-components that are connected and interact with each other. Due to this inherent complexity, there are numerous emerging challenges that need to be tackled. In those complex environments, various-interest groups collaborate and compete to achieve their goals and interests,...

More and more people are living in cities. As these cities grow, the benefits of living in them are increasingly unequally distributed. One factor that can turn the tide of glooming urban inequality is equitable access to opportunities. Designing policies for equitable access requires taking into account several components that impact...

Transportation systems are being put under increasing pressure in urban areas. These systems are concentrated, highly used and vulnerable to rainfall-induced disruptions. Improving the resilience of infrastructure systems to these disruptions has become a vital aspect of managing an urban area that is both economically viable as well as liveable...

While social segregation is often assessed in terms of one socio-geographic space, usually place of residence, more recent approaches also incorporate activity-based and, in particular, mobility-based data. This study extends the use of mobility data to measure social segregation between multiple groups by developing a method to connect socio...
