My research interests focus on transport strategy. Specifically, I am interested about how a transport system impacted by governance, policy and broader contextual factors might change, and about how providers and Government might best respond. Particular areas of expertise include travel plans, car parking, road-based public transport systems, and transport systems at the macro level. Recently, I have developed these integrative threads to consider how emergent societal and technological transformations, such as ageing populations and driverless cars may affect the future development of transport systems.
I received a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering from the University of Nottingham in 1993, attained an MSc (Eng) in Transport Planning and Engineering from the University of Leeds in 1994, and completed my PhD on bus-based best-practice and urban transport emissions with the Open University in 1998.
