About me

I am a Reader in Transport having joined Westminster in September 2012 from the University of East London, where I lectured in Sociology. I am interested in sustainable mobilities and in cycling in particular, and have published widely in this area. For more of my publications please see




I teach on the MSc Transport Planning and Management, which I led from January 2013-July 2016. I am currently leading the following modules: Transport Policy and Politics, Traffic and Streets, and Statistics and Survey Methods for Transport. I am interested in hearing from potential PhD students, particularly but not only in the area of cycling research.


My research has been funded by ESRC, AHRC, Blaze, TfL, DfT, British Cycling, CILT and others. For more on current projects please see http://rachelaldred.org/projects/
