About Me
Caralampo is an experienced transport researcher with an established international reputation. For over 25 years he has been writing, consulting and researching into transport, consumer and quality of life themes, expanding the research horizons in methodological, social, economic, comparative and policy issues. Caralampo Focas is currently a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the University of Oxford investigating transport sustainability and the expansion of cities, comparing London, New York and Tokyo. Caralampo started his career teaching as a part-time Lecturer at, the University of Greenwich and the London Metropolitan University between 1984 and 1986. Thereafter he held a variety of senior posts at the London Research Centre until its abolition in 1999. There, he was responsible for numerous high-profile transport and environmental studies for London. From 2001, for three years, he was the Greek Transport Minister’s Adviser on passenger transport including the planning of the 2004 Olympic Games. Prior to that he was director of the Athens office of the transport consultancy, TRUTH. In 2005 he was appointed a Visiting Fellow in Transport Economics in at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. On his return to Greece, he became a consultant to the Greek consumer association, “The Quality of Life”, EKPIZO, directing consumer research projects. From 2010 to 2012, he was a research scientist at the National Research Centre of Greece. Caralampo is the author/editor of five books (some of which have been translated in French and Japanese) and numerous other publications on transport and quality of life issues, including: Top Towns: The Guinness Guide to finding the best places to live in the UK. He has also authored: Towards a Common European Policy for Promoting Urban Public Transport (a policy paper discussed by the European Ministers of Transport), and The World Cities Transport Study: a comparison of the transport systems of London, New York, Paris and Tokyo. Caralampo’s last published book was Transport Issues and Problems in South-Eastern Europe by Ashgate Press. I and my family are from Greece, now living in England. We go on holidays back to Greece.
