12. 18TH JULY 2017, WHERE, WHEN, AND WHY PEOPLE TRAVEL, WITH DR EVA HEINEN

Our July event was a fascinating presentation by Dr Eva Heinen, Academic Fellow at Leeds University.

Eva is a transport research scientist with an interest in active travel.  She studies individual travel behaviour: Why people travel, where they travel to, and particularly which transport modes they use. In her research she seeks to test causal relationships and employ a variety of research methods, both quantitative and qualitative.

Her research focusses on:

  • Determinants of active travel, particularly cycling;
  • Behavioural change;
  • ‘Soft factors’ and individual transport choices;
  • Evaluating intervention in the built environment on travel behaviour;
  • Variability and stability of behaviour.

Eva kindly agreed to share this version of her presentation slides from the evening.
