By discipline, Martin Dijst is urban geographer and in 2009 appointed as full professor of Urban Development and Spatial Mobility at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. December 1, 2017, he has been appointed as head of the department Urban Development and Mobility at LISER, Luxemburg. His research is focused on analysing the impact of spatial configurations of land uses and transport infrastructures on activity and travel behaviour and accessibility. Exposures toward residential environments and while being mobile and implications for health and health behaviours is currently one of his main topics. This work includes analysing the meaning of new digitalized sensors and monitoring techniques and self-management methods to stimulate health behaviours. Since 2010 he also studies mobility, housing and health issues in Chinese cities. Since 2014, he is involved in studies on Urban Metabolism. In the White Paper ‘Exploring Urban Metabolism; towards an integrative perspective’ (Dijst et al., 2018; published in Resources, Conservation and Recycling) a combined natural and social science perspective on urban metabolism has been developed.
