My research is focused on the nexus between spatial development and transportation. The main themes I cover in my research include:
- user adoption behaviour and urban impacts of emerging ICT-enabled mobility concepts, including conventional shared-mobility services and artificial intelligence driven smart mobility such as driverless vehicles;
- land use and transport interaction modelling, applying microscopic modelling and dynamic simulation approaches to explore how urban spatial structure co-evolves with mobility patterns;
- the interaction among built-environment and socio-psychological factors in determining sustainable mobility choices such as bicycling and walking in cities; and
- comparative study of spatial planning systems with a particular interest in the systems and mechanisms through which spatial development goals are articulated and realized.
