Dr. Giulio Mattioli researches in the interdisciplinary area of Transport Studies. His research examines the multiple ways in which transport systems are locked into high (and increasing) levels of energy consumption and carbon emissions. He is specifically interested in developing a comprehensive understanding of car dependence, its social drivers and consequences, notably in terms of social inequalities. His research at SRI focuses on the political economy of social and technical provisioning systems in the transport sector, as part of the “Living Well Within Limits” (LiLi) project led by Dr. Julia Steinberger.
Dr Mattioli has a shared position between SRI and the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds, where he has been a Research Fellow since 2014, leading the EPSRC-funded project (t)ERES (“Energy-related economic stress in the UK, at the interface between transport, housing and fuel poverty”). He has held previous postdoctoral positions at the University of Aberdeen, working for the End Use Energy Demand (EUED) research centre DEMAND (Dynamics of Energy, Mobility and Demand). He obtained his PhD in Urban and local European Studies from the University of Milan-Bicocca. He has published over 10 internationally peer-reviewed articles since 2013 in journals including Transportation Research Part A, Transport Policy, Transportation, and the International Journal of Sustainable Transportation.
