My PhD research aims to examine the behavioural impacts of COVID-19 disruption on commuter travel, and to understand the role of large employers and messaging to promote sustainable commuting (including telecommuting) in the recovery from the disruption caused by significant disease control measures. The research is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) from 2019-2022.
