Hussein Mahfouz

Project Researcher

University of Leeds

Hussein Mahfouz is a PhD student at the Leeds Institute of Transport Studies. His research focuses on the relationship between bus services and mode share in urban areas, with the aim of understanding how changes in bus operations affect overall urban transport mode share. He aims to develop a reproducible and scalable methodology for (a) estimating the quantity and spatial distribution of emissions and energy demand from urban transport and (b) modelling the impact of targeted local interventions (both historical and future scenarios) on energy demand through mode shift and fleet utilization.

Prior to starting his PhD, Hussein worked as a transport consultant in Cairo on projects for IFIs, the public sector, and NGOs. He worked on projects like the Greater Cairo Region Mobility Assessment and Public Transport Improvement Study (MAPTIS), and the Ghana Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project (GUMAP) component on “Short term technical assistance for the completion of databases and maps of public transport routes and passenger flows in GAMA”. He has experience in spatial data analytics, specifically in relation to transport.
