Dr. Robert Egan: Dr. Robert Egan is a social scientist specialising in cycling mobilities and is the former Secondary Schools Development Officer of Green-Schools Travel. Completing his PhD in 2019, which focused on how people cycling in Dublin deal with matters of ‘Precarious Entitlement’ to public space, Robbie has primarily used qualitative approaches such as interviews and focus groups to explore the diverse experiences and practices of people cycling, and those who do not cycle, in Ireland. Robbie is passionate about using social theory and social research to inform policy and programmes that make cycling something that tackles rather than exacerbates social and health inequalities in Ireland.
