Tim’s current research can be situated at the intersection of urban, transport, social and cultural geography. Empirically the focus is usually on the everyday mobilities of people, goods and information. This research can be organised around five more general concerns: low-carbon mobilities, futures and temporality, social and spatial inequality, well-being, and philosophies of transport and mobility.
