Journal of Transport Geography 2012.

In this article, I explore the potential of theories of practice to inform the socio-technical transition required to adequately decarbonise the UK transport system. It develops the concept of ‘systems of practice’ to better enable practice theory to deal with broader processes of change.

Assessing the energy implications of replacing car trips with bicycle trips in Sheffield, UK

Open access version here

I co-authored it with Robin Lovelace and with Stephen Beck and Andy Wild, and it was published in the journal Energy Policy in 2011.
