Introduction
Motivated by the urgency of decarbonisation & environmental issues, I work in the field of transport geography, with some human-computer interaction work. During my EPSRC fellowship I investigated how to compose/deliver effective travel behaviour change messages for normal and disrupted conditions.I am interested in how humans make decisions about transport/mobility, as individuals or in governance. Typical methods: interviews, surveys, focus groups and HCI experiments.

Article
Transport planning is an interdisciplinary professional field concerned with the generation, assessment and implementation of policies, plans and projects necessary to improve, and manage our transport systems. This requires a wide-range of skills from different disciplines, working together to address issues and shape futures, but increasingly und...
Conference Paper

As an emerging technology, the potential deployment of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) in cities is attributed with significant uncertainties and anticipated consequences requiring responsible governance of innovation processes. Despite a growing number of studies on policies and governance arrangements for managing the introduction of CAVs...
Article
Full-text available
This study recommends novel strategies for tailoring messages to encourage walking, for use in travel planning, Mobility as a Service platforms and other apps which promote sustainable transport behaviour. We suggest strategies based on individual demographic and psychosocial factors derived from the findings of a study of the persuasiveness of dif...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we focus on the development of a new service model for accessing transport, namely Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and present one of the first critical analyses of the rhetoric surrounding the concept. One central assumption of one prevalent MaaS conceptualization is that transport services are bundled into service packages for monthly...

As an emerging technology, the potential deployment of self-driving vehicles (SDVs) in cities is attributed with significant uncertainties and anticipated consequences requiring responsible governance of innovation processes. Despite a growing number of studies on policies and governance arrangements for managing the introduction of SDVs, there is...
Chapter
In this chapter, the author argues that mobility as a service (or MaaS) as a principal means of accessing transport may make it difficult to meet existing policy aims for sustainable mobility that addresses the climate change crisis and demographic trends. Strong governance will be needed to design MaaS for these challenges whilst addressing existi...
Article
Smart mobility services, such as carsharing or ridesharing, are often promoted by their providers as the key to a sustainable transport future. However, they are also associated with risks such as increased congestion and inequality. This paper argues that state intervention is essential in order to mitigate such risks, and steer smart mobility in...
Chapter
This chapter is an overview of the issues for older people in relation to transport and technology. I demonstrate that mobility and technology are intertwined in complex ways, and that non-transport technologies may impact older people’s experience and achievement of mobility. Understanding the nexus between mobility, information and communication...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter provides a reflective critique of Mobility as a Service (MaaS), an emerging development seeking a role within the Smart Mobility paradigm. We assess a range of its future implications for urban policymakers in terms of governance and sustainability (i.e., social and environmental impacts). We begin by describing the origins of the MaaS...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present the preliminary results of a survey of persuasive communication within the sustainable transport domain. This survey is underpinned by a reconstruction of the arguments used, a scheme oriented analysis of the corpus of reconstructed arguments, and elements of a theoretical and applied framework for using the corpus to effec...

We report results from a set of online experiments to categorise and validate sets of messages for Voluntary Travel Behaviour Change (VTBC), as part of the EU FP7 MyWay project. We aim to provide targeted VTBC messaging that is personalised according to the travel attitude of the recipient. We have collected examples of real-life travel behaviour c...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The MyWay European Smart Mobility Resource Manager (MyWay) is being developed by a consortium of 14 partners across seven EU countries. The project is supported through the EU FP7 Smart Cities programme. The MyWay approach is to develop a meta-journey planner that aims to enable a better balance between public and private modes; stimulate service c...

Agricultural policy and farm lobby groups often stress the role of farm production in sustaining local economies. This paper considers the spatial pattern of upstream and downstream agricultural transactions of farms in North East Scotland and, in particular, the extent to which they take place within the locality of the farm holding. Three alterna...
Article
Full-text available
This study focuses on the role of traveller information and associated technologies in supporting personal security in travel by public transport. It reports research undertaken via a workshop involving SWOT analysis and scenario planning and a series of expert interviews. These research activities created a baseline understanding of how personal s...
Article
This paper reports findings from a project focused on understanding the interaction between transport technologies and user needs and perceptions in supporting personal security in travel by public transport. The research engaged over 60 experts from across the UK transport sector in a combination of interviews, workshops and scenario planning acti...
Article
Full-text available
Different social groups exhibit diverse travel behaviours and will thus experience very different outcomes in adapting to any changes to the transport system. This paper is concerned with making more transparent the equity implications of transport policies that are designed to change people's travel behaviours; explicitly those designed to mitigat...

Full-text available
The ourSpaces Virtual Research Environment makes use of Semantic Web technologies to create a platform to support multi-disciplinary research groups. This paper introduces the main semantic components of the system: a framework to capture the provenance of the research process, a collection of services to create and visualise metadata and a policy...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper reports interim findings from an ongoing project focusing on the role of technologies in enhancing personal security on public transport (PT). The aim is to explore how technology might be designed and deployed to counteract negative perceptions and experiences of personal security to boost patronage of PT, and utilizes a scenarios appro...
Article
A variety of approaches to road user charging (RUC) for reducing congestion and raising revenue to maintain and improve transport infrastructure is in place in many countries; examples of such RUC include: an Electronic Fee Collection System in Singapore, Cordon Pricing in Oslo City in Norway, Zoned Based Pricing in London and Distance-Based Pricin...

In this demo we present ourSpaces, a Virtual Research Environment designed to support inter-disciplinary research teams. This system has been developed to facilitate collaboration and interaction between researchers by enabling users to create, visualise and manage the provenance of research artefacts and processes.
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – The social dimensions of the relationship between transport and climate change are examined, in particular, the potential for unintended negative consequences to directly and/or indirectly arise from policies to reduce the climate change impact of the transport sector. It takes the example of current policies in the UK as its primary focu...

Full-text available
This paper explores ICT, transport and health in re lation to inclusion and Quality of Life (QoL) for older people. Through focus groups and supplementary questionnaires, findings confirm previous studies in which people in older c ohorts show a slight tendency to be less comfortable with ICT, and to integrate it less into daily life. Differences b...
Article
Although the household level is recognized as a potentially important area for the application of ecological footprint (EF) analysis, almost no work has been reported in the academic literature on EF analysis at this level. This paper describes the application of a new, diary-based data acquisition methodology used in a component approach to estima...
