Tim’s research concentrates on the geographies of the everyday mobilities of people, goods and information. It is international in outlook, interdisciplinary in scope, informed by the thinking in various sub-disciplines within Geography, and organised around five more general concerns: Low-carbon mobilities and cities – innovation and experimentation, transformations, politics and governance, justice; Futures and temporality – sociotechnical transitions, path dependency, habit, rhythm, resilience, vulnerability; Social and spatial inequality – age, gender, the role of mobility and infrastructure; Well-being – conceptualisations, relationships with mobility and place, politics; Philosophy of transport and mobility – history of thought and praxis, new concepts and modes of thinking.
