My broad research interests include research interests include sustainability transitions and diffusion of innovations. Empirically, I think through these issues by studying utility cycling and related phenomenon. I also volunteer with the Johannesburg Urban Cyclists Association - an organisation that aims to transform Johannesburg into a more cycling friendly city.
