Researcher in Intelligent Mobility, Newcastle University

Amy is the lead researcher in driver behaviour and Intelligent Vehicles at the Transport Operations Research Group (TORG). Her area of research also involves Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), Intelligent Mobility and Travel Information. She is particularly interested in testing and evaluating the effectiveness of technologies in improving road safety, meeting growing and evolving mobility needs and enhancing the provision of travel information to a wide range of road users including drivers, public transport passengers, cyclists and pedestrians at various stages of their journey. She uses both traditional and innovative research methods including direct (lab and field) observation, immersive video simulation and role play, and other survey means such as focus groups, interviews and questionnaires to ensure that the research is theoretically informed and empirically rigorous.
