Time use and spatial behaviour are crucial to understanding how people live in cities and their interaction with transportation and urban systems. Most traditional research on mobility focuses on commuting trips and individual decision-making, performed mainly by a "usual" traveller. However, having more comprehensive perspectives on travel behaviour requires broadening the individual-based assumptions, focusing on activities and trips beyond work and study, and the diversity of people's contexts. The presentation will discuss past and recent work to open up new questions on how we study and understand time use and spatial behaviour in urban areas.
Juan Antonio Carrasco is a Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering at Universidad de Concepción in Chile. Over twenty years, his research has focused on understanding the social dimension of travel behaviour through developing and applying data collection and analytical tools to capture its complexity.
