Research Fellow, Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds
Giulio Mattioli is a Research Fellow at the Sustainability Research Institute and at the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds. His research focuses on the social aspects of transport, including transport affordability, transport-related social exclusion, and car dependence.
Giulio's most recent research project was on "Energy-related economic stress in the UK, at the interface between transport, housing and fuel poverty". Although fuel poverty has become a cause for concern among policy makers, the same cannot be said for transport poverty, despite evidence suggesting that many households spend disproportionate amounts of income on transport. This project developed the concept of ‘car-related economic stress’, proposing indicators for its measurement in the UK. It also explored the relationships between affordability issues in the transport, domestic energy and housing sectors.
Giulio holds a PhD in Urban and Local European Studies, and a BA and MA in Sociology, all from the University of Milan-Bicocca. He has previously held research positions with the University of Aberdeen, and his research has been published in journals including International Journal of Sustainable Transportation, and Transportation Research Part A.
