Presentation

Technological advancements have introduced potential solutions to help government agencies and the transport industry to meet the target of providing “access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all” of the Agenda 2030 Goal 11 of Sustainable Cities and Communities. My research focuses on one of the products of these advancements, which is micromobility. In particular, I will evaluate the environmental motivation of micromobility users or those who use shared e-bikes and e-scooters on an as-needed basis. The main objective of the study is to determine whether these users have the environment in mind every time they choose to ride these microvehicles instead of taking other forms of transport. By looking at this, I will be able to determine whether micromobility can indeed reduce reliance on private vehicles, especially on cars, or it just replaces other sustainable transport options such as taking the bus or using own bicycle.

Apart from being affiliated with K2, I am also a part of the Agenda 2030 Graduate School at Lund University.
