Description of the thesis topic

The main objective of the project is to propose a "bottom-up" model which, based on local proximity indicators, will predict the main daily mobility choices of the inhabitants of a neighborhood. Then, these local choices, will be related to global emissions (CO2, pollutants, wasted time...). Thanks to these tools, we will question the relevance and efficiency in terms of the fight against emissions of urban emerging organization schemes, in particular those advocating a (re)found urban proximity, such as the concept of the 15 minutes neighborhood in which (most of) our elementary social functions can be performed locally. To tackle such a project, we shall cross the views of Humanities and Social Sciences (socio-economics) and Physics (statistics) by relying on surveys and access to digital data.

The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in reducing the environmental impacts of human activities, particularly those resulting from our daily mobility. The subject can be approached and enriched with a variety of initial backgrounds including, economics, physics, or transportation, as long as the candidate shows the curiosity and the appetite for this interdisciplinary subject. The candidate should also have good computer and data processing skills. The candidate should have excellent academic qualifications. Programming skills would be appreciated.
