Tom is a Professor of Transport Policy in the Department for Logistics (Avdeling for logistikk) at Molde teaching transport and urban development, transport governance, and smart urban mobility.  His technical skills and research areas include parking management; making streetscape accessible for disabled people; transport policy development and appraisal, including comparisons of international best practice; Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning; scheme option generation and appraisal; mobility management, especially site-based mobility plans; concessionary public transport fares; public transport scheme development and appraisal; and transport training, education and programme and staff development.  He has a demonstrated ability to work successfully with senior government staff (at national, regional, local and transnational level), donors and civil society stakeholders including universities, as well as reasonably well-developed skills in training, developing and motivating staff.  

Tom has worked at a senior-ish level in academia for many years and has worked across Europe, including a two and a half year spell as a professor and cross-institutional national research centre director in Sweden, and now as a professor at Molde, as well as previously in the UK.  He contributed to the writing of the first EU Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan Guidelines and also produced two new practitioner briefings that complement EU SUMP Guidelines.  He has carried out research and consultancy projects over many years for the UK and Scottish governments, local governments, Swedish funding councils, the European Commission, the World Bank and private sector clients.
