About Dr Dami Akosile

Creating better urban spaces and addressing issues such as urbanisation, globalisation, and climate change are my main interests as a human geographer with experience in urban planning. I am also interested in how human emotions, behaviours and well-being are shaped by different environments – spaces and places. Furthermore, I am passionate about sustainable transportation that can improve people’s mobility, accessibility and quality of life while reducing transport systems' environmental and social impacts.
