Mr Asa Thomas

I am a PhD Student at the University of Westminster. I started here in January 2020 as part of the Active Travel Academy research group in the School of Architecture and Cities. 

My research is on temporary and flexible adaptations to streets and the urban environment. I'm interested in how these interventions can impact mobility and sociality in the city. I'm specifically researching temporary School Street closures and their impact on active travel to school as well as Low Traffic Neighbourhoods in London. I am also interested in historical planning approaches to streets and traffic.
