Research / Scholarly interests

Dr Meng's research interests lie in the interaction between transport demand and transport supply. In particular, she is interested in sustainable transportation planning, travel behaviour analysis, network modelling and logistics management. She is one of the first authors to investigate the mobility sharing planning and operation issues. She has published one book chapter and over 50 journal articles, which have been cited over 300 times (h-index 9) on google scholar. She is keen to understand the users' acceptance and adoption towards new technologies, and the impact on the transportation system.
