Research – Dr Patrick Moriarty on transport issues at the Sustainable Cities Round Table, 17 March

Posted in Events, Models, Movements, Policies, Research, SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Ferne Edwards on March 31st, 2008

The fifth three-minute presenter at the Sustainable Cities Round Table on Mobility was Dr Patrick Moriarty, a GAMUT Partner. According to his GAMUT profile, Patrick Moriarty taught Civil Engineering at Dar es Salaam Technical College and carried out field research on low-cost housing for the National Housing and Building Research Unit from 1971-1977. Since 1977, his research interests at Monash University have been in the areas of urban land use and transport (both in Australia and Asia), and alternative energy. An important part of this research has been the climate change implications of different fuels/energy sources for transport and electricity generation. From this experience and background, Paddy’s talk at the Sustainable Cities Round Table was titled “The wearing of the green” (as this event was held on St Patrick’s Day!).
