The THUD Research Lab comprises a cross-disciplinary research team, exploring how the effects of urban form and transportation influence the health of residents in cities.
Planning the driverless city: What autonomous vehicles mean for Australasian cities
Autonomous vehicles may improve road safety, reduce car ownership, and reduce the need for parking. They may also entrench car dependency, encourage sprawl and shift investment away from vital public transport systems.
Safer cycling in the urban road environment

Effects of feedback and incentive-based insurance on driving behaviours
The broader funded project is the first experimental study to examine the extent to which direct-feedback and incentive-based insurance modify a driver's behaviour.
Low-Carbon Living Co-benefits Calculator
The aim of this project is to develop and trial a prototype low-carbon precinct co-benefits calculator for use by urban planners and designers.The calculator will estimate co-benefits associated with gains (or losses) in health, productivity, and pollution from a range of alternative precinct designs and transport/land use configurations.
