Areas of supervision

I welcome supervision enquiries about PhD/Masters research on:

  • urban development, travel behaviour and health;
  • the relationships between them; and
  • translation into policy and practice.

Potential research topics/questions:

  • How well are public health and health equity considerations incorporated into urban planning education?
  • Improving modelling and forecasting for active travel (walking and cycling)
  • The negative and unintended consequences of Australia’s bicycle helmet laws. Which disadvantaged groups have been disproportionately affected and to what extent? (E.g., used by police to justify stop and search of young Aboriginal people.)
