I am a Senior Lecturer in Transport, and joined University of Westminster in September 2015. Before coming to London I worked as a researcher in Ghent University (Belgium), University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands), University of Rome and University Federico II (Italy). At the latter university I completed my PhD thesis (2006, cum laude) and MSc thesis (2002, cum laude).

I am the Course Leader of the Transport Planning and Management MSc. I teach and lead the following modules: Transport Economics, Research Dissertation (Transport), Land Use Planning and Transport, Public Passenger Transport. 

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 research interests.
