Carine Khalil, MSc Candidate at Technical University Munich (TUM) and graduate research assistant in the Chair of Transportation Systems Engineering, received her BSC in Civil Engineering from TUM (2021). Her thesis on gender equality gap caused by gender-based violence in the mobility systems for Cairo, Egypt was graded 1.0/1.0 by the Chair of Transportation Systems, where she also served as a student research assistant. She won a scholarship from the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung der Freiheit for “Talented Young Foreign Students from non-EU Countries in Germany” (Begabtenförderung). Selected for the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) training program “Female Innovators in Urban Mobility” by UnternehmerTUM, she also received a scholarship from the Margarete Ammon-Stiftung to promote equality for women at work and in society. She started riding a bike in Munich on a daily basis, experiencing how cycling offers a sense of freedom and uniquely shapes one’s perception of urban and public places. Since then, she is willing to encourage the cycling experiences, especially for women in their early stages of cycling.
