Amy's area of research covers ITS for Ageing Mobility, Driver Behaviour, Intelligent Vehicles and Low Carbon Transport. She is particularly interested in monitoring and assessing driver behaviour, testing and evaluating the effectiveness of technologies in improving road safety of all road users and understanding the barriers delaying the shift to electromobility. She uses both traditional and innovative research methods including direct (lab and field) observation, immersive video simulation and role play, and other survey means such as focus groups, interviews and questionnaires to ensure that the research is theoretically informed and empirically rigorous.
