As a graduate transport planner Carrie’s main responsibilities to date have included: pedestrian modelling, station sizing, data collection and analysis.

Carrie has been doing pedestrian modelling for Mong Kok Pedestrian Footbridge project, and sizing stations for Hong Kong South Island Metro Line. Currently she is involved in Doha Gold Metro Line (Qatar) station design projects and Riyadh Metro Line Package 3 station design projects.

Her experience at ITS has helped with fundamental transport knowledge, reference to find software such as SATURN and ArcGIS.

As a recent graduate, Carrie’s advice to students interested in studying a Transport qualification at Leeds is to read as much as you can, don’t set up a knowledge boundary for yourself. Also go outside to different countries to explore multiple transport experience, to discover both the good and the not so good. An ideal opportunity to do this is on the European student field trip.
