Transport academic David Hensher

Founder and director of Sydney Business School’s Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) David Hensher has now been cited in more than 25 thousand scholarly articles worldwide.

The professor is only the second researcher at an Australian business school to reach 25 thousand citations as monitored by Google Scholar.

One particular research book ‘Stated choice methods: analysis and application’, has been mentioned nearly 4,400 times.

The book was first published in 2000 and deals with the study and prediction of consumer choice behaviour.

Hensher sees the citations as international recognition of his "state-of-the-art and state-of-practice contribution" as well as the quality of research undertaken by the ITLS.

"It reflects the amazing environment that we have built up over 25 years which encourages excellence by balancing teaching, quality research and community engagement," he says.

"The citations reinforce the well-known fact that the ITLS is a major global player and is recognised by so many people who look to us for inspiration in our research, much of which has real policy relevance in addition to adding scientific value to the literature.

 "ITLS is in the top group of research institutes of its kind in the world."

Business school dean Greg Whitwell describes Hensher’s professional milestone as a "significant accomplishment".

 "It clearly illustrates his major impact in the field of transport, econometrics and choice modelling," he says.

Hensher was also presented with the 2014 Institute of Transportation Engineers (Australia and New Zealand) Transport Profession Award recognising his "significant contribution to the development of the transport/traffic engineering profession over a sustained period".
