My research and publications focus on sustainability and mobility justice, especially on the relations between mobility justice and wider equalities and social and environmental sustainability. I also research and publish on transport governance, policy and politics of mobility planning and carbon reduction in transport, and active travel.  My research uses theoretical analysis and primary and secondary social research methods, including innovative methods such as mobile interviews and citizen and expert deliberation.

I have worked on a range of large and small research projects on carbon (some as CoI and some as researcher – see details on profile page) and undertaken some consultancy on uptake of cleaner vehicles.

I draw on my research in my teaching and postgraduate supervision. I am part of the team who have developed the novel MSc in Sustainable Cities which recognises the importance both of taking a critical view of interdisciplinary research and assessment understanding sustainability through investigation of city systems.

Much of my research has included collaboration and engagement with public and practitioners including transport planners from across Europe, third and private sector actors. This has included organising and leading workshops, direct knowledge transfer and running events at public and practitioner conferences and festivals.
