David Hensher receives 2023 Australia Day Honour
Within iMOVE and its community, and across the transport industry both in Australia and internationally, the hard, wide-ranging and important work of Professor David Hensher has long been known. His name coming up in the 2023 Australia Day Honours List then should come as no surprise. David was this week recognised as a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia (OA) (General Division), for significant service to transport, and to supply chain management.
David is currently the Director of the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) an organisation within the University of Sydney Business School that he founded in 1990. The goal of ITLS is simple: to contribute to the design, improvement and optimisation of infrastructure, transport and logistics initiatives around the world. It’s fair to say that these goals have been achieved and then some!
“I have for over 45 years worked to put Australia, through the University of Sydney, on the global map as one of the world’s best places to study and undertake research with impact in the transportation sector,” he said in an interview this week.
“To be able to say that we are as good as anywhere in the world is one of my greatest achievements, having attracted numerous academics from top universities from Europe and the USA to the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS), which I founded at the business school.”
David has been a prolific publisher of articles and research, as evidenced by his Google Scholar page. iMOVE is also fortunate in having David contribute articles for our website, that you can (re)discover on his iMOVE author page.
We’ve also been fortunate in his availability to us to sit for interviews – see David Hensher: Transport economist, and David Hensher on COVID-19 and transport.
In terms of his research work with iMOVE we’d particularly like to highlight his world-leading work on Mobility as a Service and Working from Home.
Congratulations and comments (please)
We congratulate David on this very well-deserved honour. iMOVE is indeed honoured to work with him, and acknowledge the excellent work he’s produced with iMOVE and others already, and look forward to his future research.
We’d love to hear from people in the comments field below, with their congratulations and anecdotes about David and his work.
This honour is totally deserved! You have made (and continue to make) a huge contribution to transport research and transport policy in Australia. We love your ideas. We love your energy. We love working with you, and we greatly appreciate your participation in the iMOVE CRC. BRAVO!
Thank you Ian and I really enjoy contributing to iMOVE and the great team
Congratulations David! Truly well deserved!
Well done David. You are a force of nature and a fantastic person to work with!
