Healthier mobility choices in congested cities
The project will focus on the transport choices of individuals in order to encourage behaviour that considers and improves urban climate. It will develop mobility-as-a-service mechanisms that incentivize mobility behaviour reducing traffic emissions, and active mobility choices along routes of less unhealthy environmental parameters. Integral part are a consideration of predicted emissions for modes and routes, and economic models of incentivization. This is a joint PhD project with Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, a global leader in intelligent transportation. The candidate will spent one year of the project in Karlsruhe. In Melbourne it is linked to the vibrant Climate and Energy College, and integrated in the future cities agenda of the university.
