Our Research and Teaching in Economic Geography, Transport & Logistics

In research and teaching we are dedicated to the field of economic space and locations of commerce, spanning from a local to regional and to a global scale while exploring spatial structures, functions and interdependent complexities. One particular core area of our research focuses on geospacial aspects of traffic, mobility, transport and logistics. Regional emphases of our work lie on North-Rhine Westphalia (including the Ruhr Area and the Rhine Land), the region of BeNeLux, Alpine countries such as Switzerland and Austria, the U.S.-American northeast (New England and the BosWash-Megalopolis), the states of South Caucasus; Armenia and Georgia as well as the United Arab Emirates.

Our Department features the single one Geography Chair in Germany incorporating a  specific focus on transport and logistics into the economic geographical research.  In doing so, our department pursues - within the sense of applied geographics - a design-oriented strategy at the intersection of research and science to applications in economy, politics and administration.

Furthermore our Chair represents one of the core professorships in the interdisciplinary „Center for Transport and Logistics“ at the University of Duisburg-Essen and, in addition to this, the professorship constitutes an integral part of the academic key area „Urban Systems“.

The entire staff of our team as well as I myself personally invite you to learn more about our activities. Any of your questions or suggestions you may have are welcome. Feel free to contact us at any time.
