Fariya Sharmeen has a background in urban planning with specialisations in built environment, travel behaviour and social networks. Her research interests consist of the socio-spatial contexts of urban and transportation planning and urban regeneration. Recently she has been studying individuals' behavioural traits and policy responses towards cycling innovations and the economic and policy evaluations of demand driven transit systems.  

She holds a PhD from Eindhoven University of Technology. Her PhD research was focused on the relationship between social network dynamics and travel behaviour.  Previously she worked at Radboud University Nijmegen, Imperial College London, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Cities Institute, UK and Utrecht University.
