Vonu Thakuriah is Halcrow Chair of Transport, Professor of Urban Studies and Affiliated Professor of the School of Engineering, University of Glasgow.

Dr. Thakuriah’s research is focused on the intersection of transportation, society and technology with the view that sustainable and socially-just mobility in cities of the future will require planners to jointly consider social and technological challenges. She is interested in “smart” public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian active transportation, as well as in collaborative/shared transportation systems. Her research has considered the needs of a wide spectrum of travelers including low-wage workers, seniors, persons with disabilities and young adults.

Some of her publications may be found in this site, while others are in http://glasgow.academia.edu/VonuThakuriah
