Personal profile


Debjit Bhowmick is a Research Fellow with the Sustainable Mobility and Safety Research Group. He is leading a number of key projects in the ARC Discovery Project ‘CYCLED’ (CitY-wide biCycLing Exposure modelling). Debjit is interested in sustainable solutions in urban mobility, more specifically about safety in sustainable mobility modes. He has extensive experience in analysing human mobility data, transport planning and various transport modelling techniques, such as developing agent-based simulation models.

Debjit’s joint-PhD at The University of Melbourne and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology focused on pedestrian movement behaviour in urban road networks. He proposed the novel concept of walk-sharing, a smarter way to support the safety of pedestrians and ensure a higher uptake of walking in mode share, which have both been demonstrated to be a key to livable cities and to population health. 

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals
