    Anna Nikolaeva is a postdoctoral researcher in the project Smart Cycling Futures at the University of Amsterdam and Utrecht University.

    Her primary focus is relationship between cities and mobilities.

    In 2014 she defended the PhD thesis on Amsterdam Airport Schiphol as a multifunctional public space. Before joining UvA and UU she conducted research and taught at Royal Holloway, University of London and VU University Amsterdam, and was a visiting scholar at City University of New York. At Royal Holloway she worked in the global comparative project on futures of mobility Living in the Mobility Transitions .

    In her current research she focuses primarily on

    (1) How smart cycling changes the meaning, the experience and governance of cycling in cities.

    This research is primarily based on textual analysis, a few publications are under way.

    (2) Impact of smart technology in collecting data on cycling for cycling planning, policy and advocacy. 

    This research is based on 80 interviews with policy-makers, innovators and activists in four European cities and is in the write-up phase.

    Finally, she conducts research on living labs and experiments as methods of governing transitions through participating in ongoing living labs in Amsterdam and Utrecht.

    Member of Urban Cycling Institute and Centre for Urban Studies

    Organiser of the Cities & Mobilities Seminar series
