Sebastián Astroza 


Acceso y Movilidad

Profesor Asistente del Departamento de Ingeniería Industrial de la Universidad de Concepción e investigador del Instituto de Sistemas Complejos de Ingeniería.


Ingeniero Civil y Magister en Transporte de la Universidad de Chile, Phd en Ingeniería Civil de The University of Texas.


Actualmente desarrolla el proyecto Fondecyt Iniciación Nº 11181197: Introducing non-normality in spatial multiple discrete-continuous choice models. 2018-2021.



Su área de investigación está orientada en temas de movilidad y transporte urbanos, con estudios sobre modos de transporte sustentables, modelos de elección discreta, econometría espacial, a los modelos de demanda de viaje, y al estudio de modelos de comportamiento en torno a acceso y movilidad.
