Sustainability and transport externalities


Addressing the environmental, health, economic and social impacts of transportation is crucial for creating sustainable systems. Our research in this area explores the negative externalities of transport, such as emission, noise, transmission, congestion, and accident and develops strategies to mitigate these impacts. We aim to promote policies and technologies that minimize the ecological footprint of transportation while enhancing social well-being and livability of the built environment. 





Mobility, migration, environment and climate change


As climate change continues to challenge global sustainability, our research focuses on the interplay among mobility, environment and climate change. We investigate how climate change contributes to mobility choices, migratory patterns and transportation insecurity, and of course, how transportation contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, and explore sustainable mobility solutions that can help mitigate climate change effects. This includes promoting public transit, non-motorized transport, indigeneous sociological practices, and other low-emission alternatives. 





Green energy and electric vehicles


Transitioning to green energy sources and electric vehicles (EVs) is a vital step toward sustainable transportation. Our work in this field includes researching the introduction, adoption and diffusion of EVs, such as eVTOL, and the role of renewable energy in powering transportation systems. We aim to promote the shift from fossil fuels to cleaner energy solutions. 



Recognitions & Presentations



Transport infrastructure and resilience


Resilient and functional transport infrastructure is essential to withstand the challenges posed by population, vehicular volume, urban expansion and other disruptions. Our research focuses on investigating the interaction among the different variables to ascertain the adaptability, and capability of maintaining functionality under various stressors. This includes evaluating urban expansions, infrastructure sufficiency, and practices that enhance resilience. 






Recognitions & Presentations


Space and intelligent transport


The future of transportation is increasingly driven by automation and intelligent systems. Our research in this theme explores the development and implementation of autonomous vehicles, smart traffic management systems, and other intelligent transport technologies, including unconventional modes such as space travel. We aim to promote safety, efficiency, and user experience through advanced technological solutions.
