Astrid Kemperman is an associate professor of urban planning & quality of life at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Her research focuses on the impacts of urban environments on human behavior to improve planning and design of built environments that support active, healthier and more livable communities for its residents and visitors. She has specific interest in the relation between social, physical and spatial environmental indicators and physical activity and health, leisure activities of different groups in society (e.g., children, the elderly), and shopping behavior. She also has investigated dynamics of tourist choice behavior, including modeling variety seeking, seasonality and diversification to support planning decision making.
