About me

I am a Professor of Transport and Director of the University's Active Travel Academy. I am interested in sustainable mobilities and especially active transport, and have published widely in this area. For more of my publications please see http://rachelaldred.org/publications/ or my Google Scholar page. I regularly speak about my research to academic, policy, and other audiences, through keynotes, plenary talks, workshops, and presentations, and on social media.


I teach on the MSc Transport Planning and Management, which I led from January 2013-July 2016. Modules I teach or have taught include Research Methods/ Dissertation, Analysing Transport Data, Transport Policy and Politics, and Traffic and Streets. I currently supervise seven PhD students, six as Director of Studies.


My research has been funded by ESRC, AHRC, Blaze, TfL, DfT, British Cycling, CIL, Sport England, and others. This work has won prizes including in 2016 the ESRC Prize for Outstanding Impact in Public Policy.
