About me

I joined University of Westminster in January 2020 as Senior Lecturer and my work is divided between the Active Travel Academy and the MSc in Transport Planning and Management.  I was previously teaching and researching at UCL, working on a range of themes including transport futures (including automated vehicles), transport/mobility justice, and transport policy.  Prior to entering the academic community, I spent ten years as a transport consultant with Steer Davies Gleave (now Steer).

Teaching

I lead two modules: Transport Policy and Politics (Semester 1) and Modifying Transport Behaviour: Theory, Practice and Politics (Semester 2).  The first is a core module of the MSc and the second an optional module, also available as a stand-alone module for CPD or personal interest.  I also contribute as a guest lecturer to other modules, and supervise MSc dissertations and doctoral projects.

Research

At the heart of my research interests is policy: why do we have the transport policies we have?  I am especially interested in the active-travel aspects of this question as well as the aspect of justice.  I actively research ways of improving transport policy by providing clearer and more balanced analysis and better decision-support tools.  I am also very interested in behaviour change in transport, both that which occurs naturally and that which is deliberately promoted.
