I am a Senior Lecturer in Transport and joined the University of Westminster in September 2015. Before coming to London I worked as a researcher at Ghent University (Belgium), University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands), University of Rome and University Federico II (Italy). At the latter university, I completed my Ph.D. thesis (2006, cum laude) and MSc thesis (2002, cum laude).
My research is positioned at the intersection of urban, transport and economic geography. Key research interests include geography of mobility, planning for sustainable accessibility, Transit Oriented Development, transitions to low-carbon and low-energy living and societies, decision-making processes and new ways to integrate these subjects themes.
