Dr. David-Maximilian Storch won the 2022 BASF Dissertation Award - Congratulations!
Once a year, BASF Schwarzheide GmbH selects outstanding scientific works from TU Dresden focusing on sustainability, circular economy or digitalization. One out of three prizes in 2022, endowed with 1,500 Euros, was awarded to David-Maximilian Storch from our chair. His dissertation entitled "Statistical Physics of Urban Mobility" sheds new light on the complex dynamics of modern digital and shared mobility services. The work in particular uncovered how adoption of ride-sharing may be promoted, thus improving more sustainable transport through cleverly using digitization.
The awarding ceremony was one of the highlights at TU Dresden's 'Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Day', which was celebrated with almost 400 guests at the International Congress Center Dresden on October 15, 2022. David Storch's cross-disciplinary research at the Chair of Network Dynamics which has successfully bridged data analytics with both computational modeling and fundamental theory has been part of his work at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden and gained him a doctorate through the Institute for Theoretical Physics at TU Dresden.
