Dr Anthony Whiteing


I have been Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Transport Studies, the University of Leeds since April 2004.

I obtained both my Masters in Transport Economics and my Ph.D in freight transport mode choice from the Institute for Transport Studies, working there as Research Fellow in Rail Transport until 1984. I then lectured in economics and logistics management at Huddersfield Polytechnic (subsequently the University of Huddersfield) for twenty years before returning to Leeds in 2004.
