I have worked in transport planning since 2004 when I began my career with David Tucker Associates. As a transport planning consultant in the private sector I had the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, large and small from residential, agricultural to employment and freight.
I became an independent consultant in 2012 focusing on sustainable transport, in particular, Travel Plans. I have also developed detailed on the ground experience of cycling infrastructure for all abilities having trained and worked as a Bikeability Instructor in Warwickshire.
I have also recently been awarded a PhD which focused on visitor experiences of transport use in rural tourism using the New Forest National Park as a case study area. My PhD thesis can be accessed here:
The following paper has also been published in the Journal of Sustainable Transport:

I currently work part of my week within Cherwell District Council’s Bicester Delivery Team, tasked with increasing active and sustainable travel to support the growth of the town.
