About me

Asa is a research fellow in Active Travel and Micromobility at the Centre for Transport and Society at UWE. Before joining UWE he was a Doctoral Researcher and Research Associate at the University of Westminster. His PhD research, part of Cross River Partnership's Healthy Streets Everyday programme, focused on School Street closures in London. This project looks at the policy processes, equity implications, and mobility impacts following the widespread introduction of these schemes in London from 2020 onwards. Outside of his PhD research, Asa has worked on a number of projects related to the impacts of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, including most recently a report for the climate change charity Possible on the traffic impacts of schemes in London. 

More generally Asa's research interests are on small-scale or temporary changes to streetscapes and their role in both improving public space and conditions for active travel, the mobility of children and their parents/carers, as well as issues of transport justice and local-scale transport policy.
