I am interested in the relationships between transport and health, in particular how the built environment influences , active travel behaviour, health and wellbeing. This includes how we measures the built environment and the relationship between objective measures and perceptions.My research interests also include social & distributional impacts of transport; social inclusion and transport deprivation; sustainable travel, travel behaviour, walking & cycling.My PhD focussed on objective and subjective measures of accessibility measures and accessibility planning policy.I use both quantitative and qualitative social research methodologies and have used a variety of approaches in my work including household surveys, mental mapping, GPS recorded walk-along interviews and focus groups.
