Research Summary

My research interests focus on the growth of travel demand, particularly as this is influenced by demographic factors, and on how this demand is met by investment in the transport system, as this is influenced by transport policy and new technologies.

See my website www.drivingchange.org.uk for current commentaries, my main publications, and details of my most recent book 'Travel Fast of Smart?'.
