Docent Åse Svensson is an associate professor in Traffic Engineering at Transport and Roads, Lund University, with a research background in traffic safety. Her traffic safety research deals mainly with alternatives/complements to accident data analysis, i.e. indirect safety indicators (Conflict Techniques), to estimate and assess traffic safety. Her research interests are on the whole methods for assessing traffic related qualities in the sustainable city, so besides conflict studies, this includes other types of road user behaviour studies and surveys of road user perceptions. Her focus is on pedestrians and cyclists and with the aim of proposing designs of the transport environment meeting the needs and preferences of these road user groups with regard to safety and level of service.
