Associates of ATA – collaborators not currently employed by or studying at the University of Westminster – include:
David Fevyer (https://twitter.com/DavidFevyer) has interests in both English literature and active travel. His doctoral thesis at the University of Southampton examined climate change in contemporary fiction. After several years of local active travel advocacy work in Bournemouth he completed an MSc in Transport Planning and Management at the University of Westminster. His dissertation focused upon how fatal road collisions are reported in newspaper coverage. His current research interests include the cultural and media representations of active travel modes and how these influences public understanding and political action, and the potential for inter-disciplinary conversations between cultural criticism and transport studies. He currently works as an Evaluation Officer in the Research and Monitoring Unit at Sustrans.
I have expertise in inclusive active travel and have worked with cities and organisations in the UK, US, Europe and Latin America to promote cycling equity. I have done research on intersectionality and cycling, the gender gap and other inequalities in cycling, gender inclusive urban climate action, safer cities for women and girls, and gender inclusive sustainable transport systems. I received an ATA Justice In And For Active Travel fellowship in 2021 and did research on gig economy delivery cyclists’ perceptions and experiences of cycling in London. I have continued to explore issues around cycling as labour and recently completed a research project on working conditions in London’s cargo bike logistics sector.
Currently as the Strategy Lead — Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Sustrans, I am leading efforts to embed equity across Sustrans’ work and make it a more diverse and inclusive organisation. Two current workstreams I am particularly excited about include gender budgeting in active travel in Scotland and Wales and community wealth building and active travel in Scotland. Previously I worked at the Quality of Life Foundation and led research and engagement around improving health and wellbeing in new housing developments. Prior to that I worked at the New Economics Foundation where I led projects around just climate transitions, health equity and inclusive local economies.
