The aim of the PhD is to develop a systems-view of mobility and transport in urban areas to empirically establish the influence that new forms of mobility e.g. micro-mobility can exert in amplifying public transport patronage as well as deterring private car usage in the context of global efforts to meet the net zero agenda.
The research will use a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods as well as data-rich environments and real-time positioning information of movements across modes and locations. Data analytics, user-centred design and systems thinking are core components of this work.
