Research and expertise

Having a transport engineering background, I have experience in railway timetabling as well as in transport network design and regional planning.

My interest in innovative mobility concepts and the relationship between the built environment and human behaviour informs my research. Currently, I am focussing on the application of space syntax methodology for planning purposes and the big data-based analysis of micro-mobility usage.

Current Research Activity 

  • Connected Loughborough: promoting sustainable travel in Loughborough
  • Exploiting passively generated big data for the planning and operation of shared e-scooters

As a Research Associate in the Design of Sustainable Urban Transport Infrastructures, I develop innovative mobility concepts with a focus on active travel, shared mobility, and intelligent public transport.

I joined Loughborough University as a Doctoral Researcher in 2020. Prior to that, I completed my MSc studies in Transport and City Planning at University College London and was awarded a BSc in Transport Engineering from the University of Stuttgart, Germany.
