Research Fellow, The University of Queensland

With a background in Transport Science, Engineering and Econometrics, specialising in the fields of Electric Vehicle Policy, Road Pricing, Transport Energy and Discrete Choice Modelling, I passionately believe that improvements in our transport systems can have wider influences on the sustainability of our society.

Each and every human has to make a choice about how to get from A to B, almost every day of their lives, providing a unique opportunity for policy-makers to not only influence consumer's transport-related decisions, but in the longer-term, influence the broader decisions we make in our everyday lives.

Through my research, consulting and policy advice on the behavioural, environmental, and social implications of a smart mobility future, including electric, driverless and shared mobility services, I work to improve our transport systems, and in doing so, not only increase accessibility and mobility for all, but also reduce the transport sector's environmental footprint.
