#28 - Alexa Delbosc: A social psychology toolkit for changing transport planning, built environment and future mobility
Alexa Delbosc, Associate Professor at the Monash University Institute of Transport Studies, Australia demonstrates how social psychology concepts and thinking can be applied to transport planning. We explore a variety of topics including dehumanization of cyclists, changing lifestyles of millennials, the impact of the pandemic on transport, work from home culture, the built environment considerations, egocentric anchoring in planning and new ways of thinking about the city, especially with the uptake of micromobility.Podcast Intro/Outro Song: Starsky by Alex Keren (Check out more of his tunes over on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/5vZ3lENfDLjkln8scBJ8mW)Chapters:00:00 Intro1:59 Guest Intro and Ornithology4:53 From animal behaviour to human behaviour7:56 Cars vs. Cyclists10:03 The Dehumanization Scale12:00 Addressing the contested road space16:25 Millennials and changing perceptions of the city23:54 The pandemic and its impact26:53 Work from home culture and transport29:46 Impact of the built environment and the third space31:32 Egocentric anchoring and other key social psychology concepts35:07 New ways of thinking about cities36:42 Is collective design the solution?40:00 New challenges in micromobility43:39 Where is transport planning heading to?46:47 Diversification of transport50:26 Q&A Start50:43 What inspires you?52:52 Key event, person, book53:31 If you had a magic wand?55:42 Biggest challenge in career to date57:30 Time management1:00:21 Advice for young researchers1:01:50 Easter Egg: Alexa’s D&D Campaign1:03:28 Where can people find you?1:04:06 Final Message1:04:30 OutroDetailed shownotes over at: petermbach.com/podcast for more in-depth information about each episode.Join the community over at: linkedin.com/company/tgcpodcast and let's connect across the world!Subscribe and listen to the podcast (and do please leave a review/rating) on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube or wherever you get your podcasts from.
