Victor Mayland Nielsen holds a MSc in Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In his master’s thesis, he wrote about the effect of different types of transport costs on the built environment by building upon an existing urban economic model and by empirically showing the effect of car ownership on urban density. He has worked on social cost-benefit analysis and economic impact analysis for bike infrastructure projects at Decisio. A strong interest lies in achieving an optimal balance in transport demand – ideally, by taking into account changes in urban shape. Other interests include the inclusion of active modes in transport planning and how the built environment shapes the desire to use active modes. At Significance he is working with urban mobility.
