Co-Investigator, Work Package 2 Lead, UCL
Daniel Oviedo, is Lecturer in Transport and Urban Development Planning at the Development Planning Unit of UCL. Daniel has a background in civil engineering with a Masters in Transport Planning and PhD in Development Planning. Daniel has worked as researcher and lecturer in transport and development both in the UK and overseas. My experience in research and consultancy in projects related to urban and interurban transport focus mainly on Global South Cities, having worked in projects in Latin America, Africa and India. Daniel specialises on the social, economic and spatial analysis of inequalities related to urban transport and policy evaluation in developing countries.
Daniel’s research seeks to advance existing knowledge and evidence on transport, poverty and inequality in cities of the Global South, contesting and stretching current understanding of social implications of urban transport development for vulnerable populations in cities. As transport continues occupying an increasingly determinant role in developing effective cities, concerns on issues of social and spatial inequalities will be fundamental to the well-being and economic opportunities of all urban citizens. Recent research I have been involved in explore the links between transport and social exclusion, equitable cycling infrastructure planning and the relationships between urban transport and well-being.
