We are developing interdisciplinary research proposals in a range of related areas, and have various projects on the go. These include:
- Examining experiences of cycling in Mexico City – see here for bilingual report & video.
- Project Pedestrian: Laura Laker’s new journalistic project on pedestrian deaths on footways (pavements) and verges.
- The Bike Radar Project: a collaboration with colleagues in Computer Science to collect data on passes/interactions with other vehicles.
- A Virtual Reality project in collaboration with colleagues in our XR Labs to create a prototype cycling simulator
- Cycling injury risk in relation to the route environment, a case-crossover study funded by the Road Safety Trust
- Near misses, including in relation to route environment factors
- Evaluation of smaller and larger streetscape interventions, especially their impact on active travel
- Temporary carfree spaces
- Driving cessation
- Cycling with children
- Media representation of pedestrian and cyclist casualties
- Using mobile methods to explore street interactions and inequalities
We will also be organising events and summer schools, which will incorporate some of our research approaches and methods.
