Welcome to my personal website. I’m Dr. Rachel Aldred, Reader in Transport at the University of Westminster. I teach on Westminster’s MSc Transport Planning and Management. I also sit on the editorial board of Transport Reviews. A few years back I set up this site to bring together my various academic/research/policy interests, and to continue blogging (see some earlier posts here on the Cycling Cultures website).
In 2016, I’ve been awarded the ESRC Outstanding Impact in Public Policy Prize. I’ve also been named as one of the Progress 1000 Most Influential Londoners. One of my research projects (Near Miss Project) was awarded Cycling Initiative of the Year 2015 by Total Women’s Cycling. I’m also, according to BikeBiz, one of the 100 Women of the Year 2015.
Since November 2012 I’ve twice been elected as a Trustee of the London Cycling Campaign and I’m Chair of its Policy Forum. Find out more about the Policy Forum here.
