From personal to public transport, bikes to buses, family cars to autonomous vehicles, Mobility Design Lab (MDL) researchers are experts at designing to better understand how and why we get from place to place. Affiliated with the Monash Institute of Transport Studies, the Mobility Design Lab is focused on how design might improve the physical, environmental and experiential aspects of mobility.

The Mobility Design Lab combines evidence-based research methods and real world solutions with design-led innovations that challenge prevailing orthodoxy. Our research mediates connections between science, government, engineering and user experiences of mobility systems. We engage with user-centred and participatory research techniques to reveal new insights into passenger experiences. We are passionate problem solvers with a strong track record of realising our work made real in the world.

PhD scholarship opportunity: Investigate the future direction of roads and pavements with a view to emerging transport and societal technologies. More information...

Our research is at the forefront of design-driven, industry-relevant solutions, from the everyday to the complex.
