Claudine is a transport sociologist who completed her PhD in Transport at ITLS in 2013. She is currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate with Professor Peter Stopher on analysing longitudinal changes in travel behaviour. As a transport sociologist, Claudine is interested in the transition of society's expectations and behaviour about sustainable modes of transport. This has included a research focus on small businesses in local urban town centres and how they adapt (or not) their expectations and behaviour when car parking is displaced to improve public transport, bike and pedestrian accessibility. Claudine teaches on the Masters program, with a special focus on the practice of developing and responding to transport policy.
Claudine completed her Master of Environmental Management in 2007 and a Bachelor of Arts (Sociology, Women and Gender Studies) in 1995, both from the University of NSW. Prior to joining ITLS Claudine worked for 3 years at the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change where she worked in regulatory, research and policy roles to reduce environmental impacts from business and transport. Claudine has worked as an Environmental Education Officer in local government, as well as project management roles in the not-for-profit sector in Sydney and Manchester, England where she worked on social inclusion and regional economic development projects.
