Jennifer Bonham has a background in human geography specializing in urbanization and cultural practices of travel. Currently, her undergraduate teaching focuses on urban processes and urban mobility. Jennifer's research draws on post-structuralist and feminist theoretical frameworks as it explores the complex relationship between bodies, spaces, practices and meanings of travel. Her current research focuses on cycling and the formation of cycling subjects. Jennifer's work is informed by a concern for equitable and ecologically sustainable cities. She is a past member of the organising committee for the Australian Cycling Conference, a current member of the editorial board of the journal Transfers and leads the Mobilities research group within the Centre for Housing and Urban and Regional Planning.

PhD Scholarship Opportunity: Cycle Aware: Driving with Bikes
The Australia Research Council recently awarded funding for the
project Cycle Aware: Driving with Bikes. This national project
investigates whether and how new drivers learn to engage with cyclists through
the driver licence attainment process. Findings from the research will be used
in developing education and training materials to assist drivers to interact
safely with cyclists. The project involves researchers from the University
of Adelaide, Monash University and Queensland University of Technology. Industry partner organisations are: Motor Accident Commission, Amy Gillett Foundation, Royal Automobile Association, Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, City of Adelaide, Northern Territory Government.
A PhD scholarship based at the University of Adelaide has been made available for the project. This scholarship is a great opportunity for someone who has a first class honours degree (or Masters equivalent), is keen to create safer cyclist-motorist interactions, wants to be part of a committed and energetic cycling research team and is interested in building a research career. Contact Dr Jennifer Bonham, firstname.lastname@example.org, ph. 08 8313 4655 for more information.
Current research grants include:
- Australian Road Research Board - University Research Support Grant Scheme 'Onroad infrastructure for safe cycling', $45,000
- NRMA - ACT Road Safety Trust 'Learning to drive with bikes: identifying ways to increase safe driving practices' with Dr Marilyn Johnson (Monash University and Amy Gillett Foundation), $93,000
- Australian Research Council Linkage Project - 'Cycle aware: Driving with bikes': national project to examine education and training for drivers interacting with cyclists. $180,000
