Dr Stone’s research focuses on sustainable transport in Australian cities. His research explores the politics, institutions and professional practice that lie behind success or failure in sustainable urban transport.Drawing on practice in many cities around the world, especially Canada and German-speaking Europe, his research has identified many opportunities for more effective and efficient public transport in Australian cities through better service coordination and network design.His current research raises questions about the new technologies and markets for shared and autonomous vehicles.
Will these disruptions help us to make the urgent transition to low-carbon urban transport?Since completing his PhD in 2008, his work here and at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research has been funded through many grants and consultancies including an ARC Discovery Project and a Commonwealth Endeavour Research Fellowship. This work follows over 20 years’ experience in transport in Melbourne, including work in local government and the community advocacy.
