  1. Effectiveness of strategic urban policies e.g. transit oriented development (TOD)innovation precinctsurban form and structure
  2. Socio-economic and travel behavioural impacts of transport infrastructure e.g. bicycle sharing schemes, light rail, airports
  3. Envisioning the future of cities e.g. smart cities, autonomous vehicle, climate vulnerability such as the urban heat island effect
