Professional biography

Alan-Miguel is pursuing research on public engagement methods for smart transport. His doctoral research focused on electric vehicle initiatives within the framework of the Milton Keynes Light Electric Vehicles Infrastructure (ELVIS) project. His current work explores smart transport strategies within the context of the HEFCE-funded MK:Smart project. His research is underpinned by a mixed theoretical background that seeks to build bridges between Social Marketing and Science and Technology Studies, focusing particularly on the link between consumer behaviour models and technological transition strategies.
