Curriculum vitae Curriculum vitae


Professor Corinne Mulley is the founding Chair in Public Transport at the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies at the University of Sydney. Since her appointment to Newcastle University as a transport economist she has been active in transport research at the interface of transport policy and economics. More recently Corinne has concentrated on specific issues relating to public transport. She led a high profile European and UK consortia undertaking benchmarking in urban public transport and has provided both practical and strategic advice to local and national governments on benchmarking, rural transport issues, and public transport management. Prof Mulley's research is motivated by a need to provide evidence for policy initiatives and she has been involved in such research at local, regional, national and European levels. She is recognised as a leading economist in the field of transport deregulation.

Prof Mulley is a recognised expert on the recent history of buses and is the Editor for a 'Companion to Road Passenger Transport History' – a resource document for transport historians and a sister volume to the 'Companion on Freight' published by the Science Museum. In 2006, she was appointed to the Editorial Board of the Journal of Transport History, a long standing Manchester University Press journal.

Prof Mulley came to Sydney University from TORG (Transport Operations Research Group) Newcastle University, United Kingdom. She achieved her PhD in Economics at the LSE (London University) having graduated in 1976 from London University (LSE) with a Masters in Economics as the holder of the Rees Jeffrey's Scholarship and in 1975, from Nottingham University with a BA Honours in Economics.
