Dr Paulus Aditjandra

Research Associate in Transportation and Logistics



Paulus Teguh Aditjandra has been researching transport and logistics studies for over 10 years. His research interest is broad but centred on urban form impact on travel behaviour and the extent to which transport/land-use planning can shape future sustainable travel behaviour. Dr Aditjandra has experience of quantitative micro and macro transport econometric modelling approach as well as qualitative transport and logistics research.

He has served as regular reviewer for journals such as Transportation Research Part A: Policy & Practice, Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment, Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation ReviewTransport Policy, International Journal of Sustainable TransportationJournal of Transport and Land UseJournal of Transport GeographyEuropean Transport Research Review, Sustainability and many more. He is currently on the editorial board of Case Studies on Transport Policy.

Research Interests: transportation and logistics studies

Dr Aditjandra started his research career in 2004 when he commenced a PhD (open access) at the Transport Operations Research Group, School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Newcastle University. He completed his studies in 2008 and moved to the University of Aberdeen to take an offer as a Research Fellow in the Centre for Transport Research, School of Geosciences. He has been involved in various UK Research Council and EU funded transport research projects including SOLUTIONS (Sustainability Of Land Use and Transport In Outer neighbourhoodS) and ReVISIONS (Regional Visions of Integrated Sustainble Infrastructure Optimised for NeighbourhoodS) as the closest area of research to his PhD. He has also been involved in a number of research projects including international journey planning systems (FP7), transport inclusive digital economy (EPSRC), roadmapping Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) technologies (INTERREG IVB), walking and cycling in Scotland (NHS) and Segmentation of Sustainable Mobility Campaign (IEE).

In 2010, Paulus rejoined Newcastle University with NewRail, Newcastle Centre for Railway Research, School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering. He has extended his experience to the wider context of transportation and logistics research. He has looked at the urban form impact on freight (transport) travel behaviour and long distance freight within the supply management. He has been contributing significantly to various EU funded projects in themes such as 'Urban freight economics' (H2020 NOVELOG; FP7 Smartfusion; IEE Smartset); 'Urban transport system (H2020 SETRIS; FP7 Viajeo PLUS); and 'Freight green corridors' (FP7 SuperGreen; FP6 RETRACK).      

In 2017, Paulus has moved to Newcastle University Business School, to work on a new EU H2020 funded research project VALUMICS which looks at food value chains and network dynamics across EU countries.

Paulus' research interest grows from time to time but lies in the area of transport, logistics and sustainability. His PhD research has driven him to enjoy econometric modeling that can be use to gain insights into transport, logistics and land use policy making. His PhD title is The Relationship between urban form and travel behaviour: A micro-analysis in Tyne and Wear.
