I have been a member of the Transportation Research Group since 1997, with both teaching and research responsibilities.
With a background in statistics and operational research methods much of my early research focused on issues related to quantifying behavioural responses to traveller information and representing these within existing simulation models, real-time urban journey time estimation, the development of incident detection algorithms and enabling research into the fusion of disparate sources of traffic and environmental data to generate more comprehensive views of current network conditions. More recent projects have focused on improving urban traffic control, air quality monitoring and wider aspects of traveller behaviour.
The predominant theme throughout all my research is developing understanding how all the component parts of the transport system operate, behave and interact. To achieve this I frequently work in partnership with local and national government, and industrial and academic partners from across Europe.
