Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests revolve around mostly urban-bound issues of architecture, space, and place, as well as social issues of the advancement of the automotive industry.

My PhD research aims to explore the opinions of key demographic groups on the future of autonomous transport, and to assess the future for underrepresented forms of transport – namely cycling and motorcycling - in an increasingly computer-governed world. It is part of a wider funded project within the School of Applied Social Sciences (University of Brighton) considering the gaps in knowledge present in generational understandings of automobility, and what this means for policy going forward.
