Mr Hounsell (he/him) is a researcher at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Transport Research Centre, focusing on analytics of large empirical datasets, and development of holistic customer-centric sustainable solutions for Transport and Land-Use Systems (TALUS).
Growing up in regional NSW, Mr Hounsell’s experienced the barriers to accessing human essentials created by a lack of public transport — such as, social connections, education, employment, and health care. Researchers, such as David Attenborough, showed us the wonder and fragility of this small blue world. The necessity of our species quickly transitioning to a sustainable future was obvious and formative.
As such, Mr Hounsell works to create change to a sustainable resilient future — specialising in developing efficient and accessible TALUS.
The Institute for Sustainable Futures (ISF) at UTS is an independent cross-disciplinary research institute. ISF undertakes research in a variety of fields for Australian and international clients. ISF has an outstanding reputation for its industry engagement, practicality, and commitment to delivering sustainable outcomes. Mr Hounsell attended ISF to undertake his Masters by Research. Mr Hounsell is currently expanding upon that research with a Doctorate of Philosophy at the UTS School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Mr Hounsell has developed and delivered educational materials for classes during his time at UTS, and co‑supervised several capstone projects.
Mr Hounsell previously worked for fifteen years in the software technology industry, with experience in creating Applications, Systems, and Embedded Devices.
