Short Biography

Hamid Mostofi is senior researcher since 2017  in faculty 1 of TU Berlin. He got his PhD degree from TU Berlin with the grade “Distinction: Summa cum laude” and his thesis- subject was “ The Role of Smart City Technologies in Urban Automobile Dependence and Changing Mobility Behaviour”.

Moreover, He has two Master degrees which are MBA&E (Master of Business Administration & Engineering) from the HTW Berlin and Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (Automotive) from Iran University of Science and Technology 

He worked in automotive industry, urban mobility and smart city research institutes from 2008. In TU Berlin, he had the role of project manager in SUMIC project “ Developing smart urban mobility, funded by BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research)in 2021, project team member of GECI ( Green Energy Center) funded by BMU (German Federal Ministry of Environment) between 2017 -2021). His current project is eHaul : Electrification of long haul heavy-duty commercial vehicles with automated battery swapping stations which is funded by German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action. He has the responsibility of business model development for battery swapping stations in Germany as well as evaluation of the acceptance model among different stakeholders.

In addition of his research activities , he is lecturer at TU Berlin since 2018 for modules Economics, and business model development  for the program MBA sustainable Energy/Mobility management, and at HTW Berlin since 2019 for the course “system dynamics modelling for business analysis”.
