Hi! I'm Rahul Raoniar
I'm a Post Doctoral Fellow at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. In my research, writing, teaching, and public speaking, I engage with a variety of themes in road safety and transport psychology.
My current interests focus on
Walkable and Cyclable Cities.
Pedestrian and Bicyclist safety.
Children's Road Safety.
Safe Mobility for Blind Pedestrians and Persons with Walking Disabilities.
I have a background in transportation engineering (Ph.D., M.Tech) and programming (Python, R, Stata, etc.). In 2022, I defended my Ph.D. thesis on "Study of Pedestrians’ Unsafe Road Crossing Behaviour at Signalised Intersection Crosswalks." Before joining IIT Guwahati, I conducted research at CSIR - Central Road Research Institute.
Walkable and Cyclable Cities, Road Safety, Injury Prevention, Transport Psychology, Transportation Accessibility, and Quantitative Social Research.
