Jana Sochor holds a Ph.D. in Transport Science from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden (2013), after which she completed a postdoc at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden and went on to work as a (senior) researcher at Chalmers and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. At KTH, Jana is currently working as a "researcher in sustainable mobility".
Jana's research interests include understanding end users’ perceptions, motives, and behaviors as related to mobility and related services in general, and integrated mobility services e.g. MaaS in particular, so as to improve service design and development, adoption, and effect. She approaches mobility from a systems perspective, where better alignment is needed among service offers, public policies, etc. (and their related stakeholders) so as to constructively meet users’ needs while positively impacting users’ options and choices in a more sustainable manner. Jana has served as a main member of the Innovative Public Transport Services and Technologies Committee (AP020), as well as a main member of the Subcommittee on Privacy under the Standing Committee for Data Decision Making (AJE70), of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) since 2016.
