    Tim Breemersch

    Tim Breemersch holds a Master in Applied Economics and obtained an additional Master in Environmental Science and Technology. He started his career as a Business analyst for DHL international and joined the team of Transport & Mobility Leuven in 2007. At TML, he specialized in the modelling and economic evaluation of transport and environmental policies. His research is oriented towards energy efficiency and the emissions of passenger and freight transport; both on a regional as well as on an international (European) level. Combining his economic and technical background, Tim has been engaged in projects assessing the impact of policy changes on the competitive position of different transport modes, with a specific focus on road (freight) transport on a macro level. On a micro level, Tim has been involved in several social cost benefit analyses of (transport)infrastructure.
