Peter Burge is the operations director at RAND Europe. He also maintains an active research portfolio. His main areas of research interest are stated preference market research and discrete choice modelling, and he has been involved in more than 60 studies employing these techniques to address policy issues.
Although coming from a transport demand modelling background, he has also applied his experience in the modelling of choice behaviour and quantifying preferences to studies within the health, telecoms, environmental, and postal sectors.
Burge received his M.Sc. in transport from the Centre for Transport Studies, University of London, and his M.Eng. in civil engineering from Imperial College, University of London.
