Dr Rachel Aldred


I am a Professor of Transport and Director of the University's Active Travel Academy. I am interested in sustainable mobilities and especially active transport, and have published widely in this area. For more of my publications please see http://rachelaldred.org/publications/ or my Google Scholar page. I regularly speak about my research to academic, policy, and other audiences, through keynotes, plenary talks, workshops, and presentations, and on social media.


My research has been funded by NIHR, ESRC, AHRC, Blaze, TfL, DfT, British Cycling, Sport England, and others. This work has won prizes including in 2016 the ESRC Prize for Outstanding Impact in Public Policy.
