About our research

Find out more about our research interests and partnerships.

Our research aims to contribute to the development of passenger and freight transport systems which are environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. It focuses on the interactions between behaviour, infrastructure and operations and how they translate into policy and practice. We have expertise across all major transport modes and from a range of disciplinary backgrounds. Specific areas of current focus include:

  • Freight and logistics
  • Geospatial analysis of transport systems
  • Human factors in transport
  • Infrastructure cost modelling
  • Public transport demand and operations
  • Resilience and vulnerability of transport systems
  • Safety
  • Sustainability and the environment
  • Traffic management and control

Our work is funded by a range of government and industry sources. We frequently work in partnership with a range of external companies and organisations and with other universities around the world. See the ‘Projects’ section of this website for more details of current and recent research.
