Dresden transport and traffic scientist Professor Regine Gerike has been appointed to the German Aerospace Center (DLR). She will take over as Divisional Board Member for Energy and Transport in the late fall of this year.
For Regine Gerike, the appointment to DLR is a great honour and recognition of her previous professional achievements in science and research and her outstanding commitment to numerous national and international committees, working groups and projects. „Therefore, I am very happy for Regine Gerike and congratulate her warmly on behalf of all faculty members. I am optimistic that the previous cooperation of the faculty with DLR will be further strengthened and expanded by this change,“ said the Dean of the „Friedrich List“, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, Prof. Günther Prokop.
Regine Gerike has been Head of the Chair of Integrated Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering at the „Friedrich List“ Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences at TU Dresden since 2015. In addition, she has been a member of the faculty’s dean’s office as Vice Dean Research since autumn 2018. „In this role, she has been instrumental in driving forward the strategic realignment of the faculty.
