Ariane Dupont-Kieffer, PhD, is the Director of the Sorbonne School of Economics at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne.
Her research focuses on the links between economic theory, modelling and policy making and policy assessment. She has done extensive research in the area of Epistemology and History of Economic Thought and focused specifically on the history of econometrics and macroeconomics and the relationship between measurement issues, statistical analysis and policy making.
After ten years of experience of investigating theoretical and methodological issues, she worked with Ifsttar (former INRETS) to contribute to the assessment of road externalities. Within the perspective of sustainable transportation, she has developed the understanding of determinants of mobility with a focus on gender and equity issues to be related to efficiency. An important part of her work is dedicated to enhance international comparison of data on gender and equity in mobility and to translate research findings into policy implementation.
Ariane Dupont-Kieffer has been involved in European projects such the TEA COST Action No. 1209 “Transport Equity Analysis: Assessment and Integration of Equity Criteria in Transportation Planning” where she developed with colleagues a proxy measure to appraise equity in urban mobility policy based on the theoretical framework developed by the European cooperation in the field of transport equity.
Ariane Dupont-Kieffer is key member of the TRB Scientific Committee on Women’s Issues in Transportation.
