Personal profile

Biography

Alexa Delbosc is utilising her passion in social sciences to research the impact that the transport system has on society.

Alexa is a Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Transport Studies, Faculty of Civil Engineering at Monash University. After graduating from Harvard with a Masters in social psychology, Alexa wanted to apply her social science research skills to solve real-world problems.  Her research has covered such topics as the impact of transport on psychological well-being, understanding the psychology of fare evasion and exploring the changing mobility of the millennial generation.  This last project has earned her a prestigious Discovery Early Career Research Award from the Australian Research Council.

The intersection between transport engineering and social science is an emerging but very important frontier in transport research. The benefits of Alexa's research are immeasurable, as she is able to directly inform transport policy and planning; cultivating strong industry and government contacts.
