Dr Frauke Behrendt’s is Associate Professor at the Technology, Innovation and Society Group at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Her expertise is on smart and sustainable mobility as well as digital/data culture and society.

Behrendt’s research is located at the intersection of three key themes: Mobility, Sustainability and Digitalization. It engages at the local, national and international scale, investigates a range of modes, explores the past, present and future – and considers the user experience, the design and industry perspective, and the policy landscape – of how we can move towards radically more sustainable mobilities.

 

Academic background

Frauke Behrendt attracted €3.5m of external research funding and let (Principal Investigator) a range of projects and interdisciplinary research teams (also with non-academic partners), including Creative and Industry Approaches to Mobility in the Age of the Internet of Things, Blockchain and Data (CIAM), Intelligent Transport Solutions for Social Inclusion (ITSSI), and Smart e-bikes: understanding how commuters and communities engage with electrically-assisted cycling. She also let the successful funding application for Innovative Light ELEctric Vehicles for Active and Digital TravEl (ELEVATE): reducing mobility-related energy demand and carbon emissions, working with Universities of Oxford and Leeds as well as the WHO. Furthermore, she was Co-Investigator on the European COST Action on Sonic Interaction Design and let the Mobile Music Workshop Series.

Behrendt’s interdisciplinary research is published in ranked peer-reviewed journals and is cited in the areas of transport and mobility studies, communication and media studies, sound studies, computer science and interaction design. Her research results have impact beyond the academy for business (e.g. citations in patents, start-up consultancy) and policy (e.g. reports). She has given numerous keynotes and guest lectures in the UK, Europe and the US.  She peer reviews and evaluates for EU H2020 calls and projects and several national funding bodies (UK, Hong Kong, etc).

Frauke Behrendt’s teaching experience comprises undergraduate, graduate and PhD level, including successful supervision of several PhD and MA thesis, as well as degree development and leadership.  

She is currently supervising PhDs on the Datafication of Cycling, on Drones for Heritage Communication and Audience Development, 3D 5G Immersive Audio for Urban Outdoor Heritage Contexts, and Noise after finitude, for all of which she won the funding and was first supervisor while at Brighton. PhD completions include Media Analysis of Hydro-Policies for Climate-Resilience in Israel and The Physical Process of Repairing Cities’ Urban Fabric.  

Before joining TU/e, Frauke Behrendt was the Deputy Head of School for Research & Enterprise and the founding director of the Centre for Digital Media Cultures at the University of Brighton. She also researched at the Cultures of the Digital Economy research institute (CoDE) at Anglia Ruskin University and was Visiting Assistant Professor at the Digital+Media Graduate Program at the Rhode Island School of Design (US).
