A qualified architect and town planner, he completed a doctoral thesis on transport, planning and environmental issues in 1970 at the University of Edinburgh.
Hillman co-authored a 1990 study, One False Move, which equated the reduction in child casualties on British roads in recent decades with the loss of freedom that they have experienced. He is a strong proponent of personal carbon trading (and specifically personal carbon allowances, a concept he helped develop).
He believes public policy should be more socially and environmentally conscious.
