Hannah Gumble is a part-time PhD researcher funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council at The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London. Her research focuses on how micromobility can be accommodated in existing streetscapes and the potential impact on other street users. The use of e-scooters in urban streetscapes will be examined through the development of an agent-based model informed by observational research and crowdsourced geographic data.
Alongside her doctoral studies, Hannah is a strategic transport modeller assessing proposed transport schemes to understand social, economic, and environmental impacts. Hannah chose a career in transport planning as it is an integrated part of everyday life and has a real-world impact on both quality of life and the environment. Hannah has a key interest in sustainable transport and wants to push the boundaries of transport planning to deliver innovative transport solutions. Hannah is passionate about knowledge sharing and has experience presenting at international conferences.
Hannah graduated from The University of Plymouth with a first-class Geography degree in 2016. Hannah then went on to work as a transport planner and completed a Masters in Spatial Data Science and Visualisation at University College London. Hannah is a passionate STEM ambassador, member of Women in Transport and Postgraduate Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
