About

My research explores the interactions between people, cities and transport aiming to inform human-centered, environmentally and socially sustainable planning policies. My latest research focuses on the social acceptance and long-term societal implications of emerging mobility technologies (e.g. automated vehicles, vehicle sharing, MaaS and Hyperloop) for accessibility, spatial structure, social inclusion, public health, planning and mobility governance. I am also interested in human perceptions and preferences of travel (e.g. travel time, accessibility) and their integration into urban and transport planning. I have a strong interest in developing theory and concepts in those fields and empirically explore them using both quantitative and qualitative methods.
