Whilst having a background in urban, social and cultural geography Jennie’s research strongly relates to the field of mobilities and transport research. Her current research explores everyday urban mobility, particularly people’s spatio-temporal and embodied mobile experiences, and the implications of this for urban and transport policy. Jennie’s work to date has been funded by the British Academy and ESRC and has been published in a range of internationally peer reviewed journals including Environment and Planning A, Geoforum, Social and Cultural Geography, and Urban Studies (please follow link for publication details). Jennie is course director for the TSU’s short course Oxford Leadership Programme: Global Challenges in Transport hosted at Kellogg College and is module leader for the MSc in Sustainable Urban Development on the transport and sustainability module. She also teaches on the Final Honour School special option ‘Transport and Mobilities’ in the School of Geography and Environment.
