Leslie Murray

Lesley Murray is a Senior Lecturer in Social Science at the University of Brighton, UK, where she is leading the local strand of a large RCUK Energy Programme funded research project on low carbon mobilities. Lesley has over 20 years experience in mobilities research in academia and local/regional government, having worked as a transport researcher for the London Research Centre and subsequently as a transport planner in the Greater London Authority, contributing to the London Mayor’s first transport strategy for the capital. She then moved to Transport for London, commissioning research on women’s and children’s transport issues. As well as mobile and visual methods, Lesley’s research interests centre on everyday mobilities and their intersections with the life course. She has publications in mobile methodologies, children’s mobilities and older activists and is currently working on a trans-disciplinary edited book: ‘Representations of Mobilities’.
