Carine Khalil, MSc candidate at Technical University Munich (TUM) and former graduate research assistant in the Chair of Transportation Systems Engineering, received her BSc in Civil Engineering from TUM (2021) with a thesis on “Gender equality gap caused by gender-based violence in the mobility systems in Cairo, Egypt” with a perfect score (graded 1.0/1.0). Carine holds a scholarship from the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit for “Talented Young Foreign Students from non-EU Countries in Germany” (Begabtenförderung). Selected for the UnternehmerTUM training program, “Female Innovators in Urban Mobility” co-funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), she also received a scholarship from the Margarete Ammon-Stiftung to promote equality for women at work and in society. Carine became dependent on her bike in the daily use to get around and explore urban and public places at the age of 22. She believes cycling gives a sense of freedom and is interested in encouraging people to cycle more, in particular women.
