Biography

Dr Fiona Crawford joined the University of Glasgow in November 2022 as a Lecturer in Transport Planning.  Prior to this she was working at the University of the West of England (UWE) in the Centre for Transport and Society and in the Data Science and Mathematics cluster. 

She has a PhD in Transport Studies from the University of Leeds as well as master’s degrees in Social Research Methods (Social Policy) and Data Science and Analytics.  She is a quantitative social scientist with a particular focus on travel behaviour and associated changes in working patterns and grocery shopping behaviour.  She is passionate about supporting women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Research interests

  • Emerging forms of data for understanding travel behaviour
  • Encouraging a shift to more sustainable and active travel modes
  • Within and between person dynamics, i.e. differences in behaviour of an individual from day to day, and systematic differences in behaviour due to the day of the week or the season, for example
  • Transport inequalities and gender biases
  • Relationships between transport and societal trends, for example changing working patterns, online shopping and globalisation
