Dr.-Ing. Wulf-Holger Arndt


Wulf-Holger Arndt studied transportation planning in Petersburg, Dresden and Berlin. After his degree in Transportation (1995 - Dipl.-Ing.), he worked as a freelancer in transportation planning and urban planning. From 1997 to end of 1999 he worked in the Institute for Ecological Economy Research in the Department of Urban development, Planning and Transportation. During this time, he was involved in a couple of research projects about sustainable urban transport. In this time he was leader of projects on field of transportation planning especially in task of commercial and freight transport. 2000 until 2008 he worked for lectures and research in the Department of Integrated Transportation Planning and since 2008 in the Center for Technology and Society (CTS) at TU Berlin. Since 2011 he is head of the research unit "Mobility and Space" in the CTS. He received his doctorate from the Technical University of Berlin with a thesis on the optimization of commercial transport. He is lecturer for the subjects transportation planning in international context, climate change and transport system, and commercial transport. His additional research fields are flexible planning methods and barrierfree mobility. Since May 2009 he works at the German Institute of Urban Affairs in an additional employment. Wulf-Holger Arndt is vice spokesman of the Research Cluster "Urban Metabolism" of the Innovation Center "Habitat Design" at the Technical University of Berlin.
